I agree that Barbara Altounyan goes too far in criticising the BBC for making the Swallows so English. After all, they have an English naval officer for a father and an Australian mother.
Yes. They are AR's stories, nobody else's, and although a lot of details are left obscure- for instance, what colour was their hair, and what was the actual year in which each adventure happened, that part of it is explicit and absolutely nailed down.
In the new film, from the material released so far, the only real issue of that kind would be the ages of the two elders.
But a tremendous amount will depend on the script. If that's well done, many of the details will become unimportant.
