In Season 6, the characters known as "the Pack" were also constructed to a large scale, and large models of Thomas and Percy were made to interact with them. Beginning with the ninth season, the Thomas model also interacted with the narrow gauge engines. It was joined by a large version of James in the tenth season. For the first two seasons the series was closely based on stories from the Railway Series.
The first season took stories from the first eight books, along with one specially written by the Rev. Awdry, Thomas's Christmas Party. The second season took stories from Book 9 to Book This last book was unusual, in that it was written specifically by Christopher Awdry in order to be adapted for the series, as a contractual obligation of the series at that time was that it could not create original stories that had not previously appeared in print.
The series also adapted a story from a Thomas Annual, 'Thomas and Trevor', and an especially written stand-alone story, Thomas and the Missing Christmas Tree. There were two primary reasons for diverging from the original books. The first was that many of the books not yet adapted featured large numbers of new characters, and so would be expensive to produce. The second was that the producers wanted more stories centering on Thomas, City Of The Damned - Green Day - Live In Berlin 2009 (DVD) nominal main character.
The Rev. Awdry complained that the new stories were unrealistic and not true to the spirit of the books. For the fourth season, the producers planned to introduce some "new" female characters, including Caroline the car, Nancy the guard's daughter and The Refreshment Lady. Some commentators took this as a response to a number of accusations of sexism that had been levelled against the series two years earlier.
In reality, they were not "new" characters, but creations of the Rev. Awdry, borrowed from The Railway Series. Season 4 was almost entirely based on the Railway Series, the last season so to do. The narrow gauge engines were introduced, greatly increasing the number of stories that could be produced.
Only one original story was used, namely 'Rusty to the Rescue', but this took certain elements of plot and dialogue from the book Stepney the "Bluebell" Engine. The fifth season was a radical departure, as it was entirely original. This season saw the introduction of new characters and more action-packed storylines.
Following this season, the film ' Thomas and the Magic Railroad ' was released. It featured only a small number of characters from the television series and was rather more fantasy based. Despite high production values and the popularity of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, the movie was criticised for being confusing, badly written, poorly directed, poorly acted and not true to the spirit of either the Railway Series or the television adaptation by UK audiences.
New episodes that had been written by Britt Allcroft and director David Mitton were from then on scripted by hired-in writers. The sixth and seventh seasons continued the policy of action-packed storylines and new characters. The sixth season was notable for its attempt to create a spin-off series.
In this City Of The Damned - Green Day - Live In Berlin 2009 (DVD) season, two episodes were produced centering around a group of new characters known as 'The Pack'.
These were construction machines, and it has been speculated that this was an attempt to cash in on the success of Bob the Builder. The spin-off never materialised, and as the models of the Pack were incompatible with the other characters in the series, they have not been seen in the series since. However, they have recently appeared in a straight-to-video spin-off release called On Site with Thomas. Following Season 8, a number of significant changes took place. The series was taken over by HIT Entertainment.
Episode length was increased from four and a half to seven minutes, and a new theme tune was composed. Following complaints from parent action groups concerning the number of accidents in the series, the stories' emphasis was moved from action to character, with episodes generally focusing upon morals. Shortly before the release of Series 9, a straight-to-video film, ' Calling All Engines ', was released.
This featured characters from 'Thomas and the Magic Railroad', but was not a sequel as such. It received a far better reception than the earlier film, and HIT are thought to be considering the possibility of similar specials in the future. Series 9 and 10 featured the introductions of new characters, as well as returns of several older ones. The show format generally remained the same City Of The Damned - Green Day - Live In Berlin 2009 (DVD) Series 8. Season 10, which aired inbecame the first season to ever feature 28 episodes, as opposed to the standard 26 episodes per season.
The 20th season had a new computer-CGI style that was realistic, which is used in most professional films. The 20th season included 28 episodes. This change also marked the first time that a railway series character that had never been seen in the Television Series before appeared City Of The Damned - Green Day - Live In Berlin 2009 (DVD) the first time. The characters were Mike, Rex and Bert. The 21st season in was the shortest so far, having just 18 stories.
Bulgy the bus appeared in this season for the first time since season 12 in Season 22 in marked the first major reboot of the franchise since the show switched to full CGI in the thirteenth series. The episodes retained their eleven minute-long runtime, but were now broken into seven minute-long stories, with an additional four minutes reserved for a variety of segments like sing-along karaoke songs, music videos, or segments of Thomas talking directly with the audience about lessons learned during a particular episode.
Toby was also quietly dropped, and the narrator was replaced with Thomas in a first person perspective. Season 23 was once again, split into two halves: One half with Thomas travelling around the world, and one half taking place on the Island of Sodor. Along with more episodes set in the previously visited China, India and Australia, Thomas also visited two new countries, Italy and Brazil.
