Dowager Hatt

Dowager Hatt is Sir Topham and Sir Lowham Hatt's mother, Stephen and Bridget Hatt's great-grandmother and Lady Hatt's mother-in-law.


In her first visit to Sodor, Thomas was charged with bringing her to Kirk Ronan. She later visited Sodor several times, including once to celebrate her birthday.

During her youth, she used to be a very good opera singer, though her son does not like hearing it. She owns a Dalmatian, which she renamed "Gremlin" after her adventure with Gordon's "gremlins".

In the Driver Perkins segments of the Thomas and the Runaway Kite DVD it is revealed that she also has a parrot named Beaky.

As of the CGI Series, Dowager Hatt appears to live near Maithwaite.

She later attended Sir Robert Norramby's Christmas Luncheon and became cross when Sir Topham Hatt failed to show up for a lunch date and went out to find him, on board Thomas.


She is a bit of a thrill-seeker, and hates going slow and resting. She hates nonsense, and is shown not to believe in mythical creatures such as the Abominable Snowman. She loves her son, Sir Topham, and opera singing.


Dowager Hatt usually wears a green dress and a green hat, with a gold band and a red flower on it. During the winter she wears a purple dress and purple hat with a lighter purple flower on it.
