It should noted that the following characters do not owe their origins to the Awdrys, but were created exclusively for the television series by Britt Allcroft, David Mitton and later, HiT Entertainment. Many thanks to Tom Wright for the initial preparation of this page. I haven't seen many of the videos or kept pace with the television series, so apologies in advance for errors and upkeep.
