I think that the problem with them filming the later books would be because of the time that passes between The Angry Tide and The Stranger from the Sea.† The actors would, probably, still look too young and changing them never really works, I think.
I'm not sure that the last five books would work so well - they are much more about the children. Though I love the escapades in France in The Twisted Sword. Sometimes series can drag on when their time is up. Maybe wait a while, and film the five as a separate thing?
I think it all depends on obtaining funding to see the project through long term but I feel sure that the plan is to serialize all 12 books this time and with the popularity and viewing figures soaring as it continues to be shown around the world, I'm fairly confident that we can look forward to seeing this happen. †Security around filming on location has been tightened up considerably this year, as was inevitable, in order to preserve the smooth running of filming and to avoid the cast being inundated with hoards of fans clambering to get close to Aidan Turner. †
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
Have read that the BBC deny signing up for 5 more series.† Apparently, they have only the next one scheduled for 2016.† Filming will begin very soon down here.
