Episode 9: The Great Lake - ‘No more’n four to a boat!’
For our ninth episode, our tour guides must brave the Great Lake – or is it the Black Lake? Spoiler: it’s the same lake! Our hosts Will Hagrid, Alex Scamander, Greta Granger and Nick Longbottom are getting their feet wet, diving right in, and holding their breath for some truly fascinating underwater content!
Encounter the cephalopod (posh word for a squid) – potentially the wizarding world’s BIGGEST animagus. Sail underwater with the Durmstrang ship, and discover a possible Viking inspiration for it! Try and pronounce the various Lochs used for filming, and meet the creatures that lurk in their depths. Also including: The Black Lake – your next diving holiday? Merpeople: Beasts or Beings? A variety of Health and Safety concerns about the Second Task; a daring rescue by Hagrid that never happened, and a Hufflepuff standoff that almost sinks the episode!
So no more’n four to a boat, swashbucklers, as we spend just over 30 minutes trying to row our way across the Great Lake to dock at Hogwarts Castle!
