Is there anything in any commentary from PJ or anyone else explaining why Dol Guldor was portrayed as it was? It seems to me that the concept was an “undead” fortress – essentially a skeleton of a fortress to match the theme of a necromancer. Just curious if this is what they had in mind.

I prefer to picture a more traditional fortress, since this is where a multi-pronged attack against Lorien, and Thranduil was launched from. It must have been a major fortress with a large army to attempt this.

This question has been bothering me, I knew I had read/heard about Dol Guldur in the movies but I couldn't remember where.

I think the depiction as an abandoned fort is correct, I always pull out my copy of the Silmarillion or the appendices in the Return of the King when I want to examine items in more detail. Also look online at http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page and http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Main_Page to help point me in the right direction to look.

Regarding the White Council attacking, PJ did mention that he didn't want a big battle like in the Two Towers or Return of the King, he wanted to keep it small and concentrated on the characters.
