A grave matter

The National Trust, which manages Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales, has commissioned a survey to decide whether a grave paying tribute to Dobby, the house elf who died in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, should be moved from the beach where his death was filmed.

Victoria MacLean, a Harry Potter fan from Neath, told BBC Radio Wales Breakfast there should be a compromise as to what is left at the grave, but said another tribute would soon be constructed there if it was moved.

Sorry to break it to you like this, Vicky, but Dobby doesn't really lie there. He's a fictional character. It was all make-believe. The grave and tributes mark nothing but a plot point. Sorry.

Full disclosure: I never liked Dobby. He was an irritating, obsequious little turd, and his death was one of the few bright points in the dreary end to the saga, bringing joy to my heart. (devil)
