Alice (TV miniseries)/Trivia

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Nick Willing, the writer and director, had previously done a direct adaptation of Alice in Wonderland in 1999, starring Miranda Richardson, Martin Short, Christopher Lloyd, and Tina Majorino as Alice.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: A cavalcade. Tim Curry appears for three minutes as The Dodo, a resistance leader, and yet managed to get top billing. Harry Dean Stanton as the Caterpillar, also a resistance leader. Kathy Bates as the Queen of Hearts. Colm Meaney as the King of Hearts. Matt Frewer as the White Knight. Even Alessandro Juliani shows up as the 9 of Clubs. The only relative unknowns are the leads, and even they have a few series each under their belts.
    • This troper never saw anything that had Tim Curry in it, yet she still recognised him...
    • Taggart is the White Knight!
      • You mean no one noticed that Hatter is Connor from Primeval?
        • Perhaps it was the fact that Hatter was capable of handling a gun that threw them off.
          • This troper noticed. Her brain promptly went boom.
    • Wanda was the Dormouse.
    • The Duchess was Harriet the Spy's nemesis Marion Hawthorne.
    • Alice's mother Carol is Teryl Rothery who played Dr. Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1
    • Alice herself is Dr. Amelia Shepherd.
    • Jack Chase is Fauxlivia Dunham's boyfriend.
  • What Could Have Been: An early scene filmed but that only partly made the final cut revealed that the connection between Hatter and Mad March, only vaguely hinted at in the series, was that they were brothers.
