Tom

would not have slowed the story down, if done right. They didnt need to show the long stay in Tom's house, or the stories he told, but they should have shown the travel through the Old Forest and the capture by Old man Willow and the rescue by Tom. Its an iconic moment. They could have shown him giving the hobbits some good advice and telling them the song to sing if they get in trouble, which they promptly do, in the Barrows, and Tom rescues them again and gives them the swords, a very important moment. That would not slow anything down. and keeps the mystery of who Tom is. They could show the Hobbits musing about who or what he is on the Road before they reach Bree.. also I would have liked to see the gradual darkening of the colour tones, from the bright golden Shire to the darker greyer Old Forest, with the sudden welcome bright flash of Tom with his bright gay colours, like some small memory of the Shire wandering the murky forest. Then on to Bree the clouds forming over their heads like the breath of the Black Riders on their necks.
