Podcast Question of the Week – Episode 153

The Dursleys might have departed, but our desire to find out more about them is still ever present.

However, in true Rowling fashion, not all is revealed, something that was met with disappointment on many fans’ initial reads of Deathly Hallows. What scraps of information about the Dursleys could Rowling have added in this moment to satisfy our curiosity? What would have been the consequences to the story of Deathly Hallows if more information had been revealed at this point?
