Isn't there some dispute as to whether The Eustace Diamonds, which doesn't particularly concern politics, and in which the Pallisers play only a rather minor role, should really be considered part of this sequence? I've certainly read criticism saying as much. I know it is frequently considered as such, and appears in boxed sets with the others, and was adapted in the miniseries, but this seems to make things too neat. There are, after all, considerable overlaps between the Barsetshire novels and the Pallisers (including the old duke and Plantagenet, who first appear in the former sequence). john k (talk) 19:34, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Phineas Finn is one of the three most important characters in the series, in fact two of the novels are named after him and yet the actor who played him is not mentioned in the article. This seems very odd to me. I also think Barrington Erle is more important than a good half of the other characters listed, he certainly gets considerably more air time than Mrs. Bonteen for example. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:17, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Undue weight on adaptation[edit]

Why on earth does this article have a more complete cast listing than The Pallisers? -- (talk) 19:21, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

  • I agree and have removed the whole cast list, which does not belong here at all. --Guillaume2303 (talk) 11:18, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
