Behind the scenes

  • Tom Riddle tells Hagrid that Myrtle's parents will be arriving at Hogwarts to collect their daughter's body; as they are Muggles, this should not be possible. However, the charm may have been lifted for the event, or Tom may have been lying.
  • Sirius says his father Orion Black put every protection known to wizardkind on 12 Grimmauld Place, and since Muggles cannot approach or enter it, it is possible this was among those spells.
  • Muggles can see neither the Leaky Cauldron nor St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries; this may therefore be placed on both locations.
