Mrs Coulter consistently lies to Lyra and denies her reality, including lying and saying her daemon was not where it was.

Ep 2: The monkey daemon attacks Pan on command, causing both Lyra and Pan pain. Pan makes crying noises through his animal forms. Coulter also slaps the monkey in the same episode.

Mrs. Coulter is shown hurting her own dæmon when she is upset. Before this, the show establishes that physical pain done to a dæmon is felt by their human; Mrs. Coulter is actually self-harming by this action.

I guess the 'no' voters don't suffer from motion sickness, but on and off, there IS shaky cam. The credits also spin at one point, which isn't shaky cam, but does trigger motion sickness.

Characters are each seen sitting in a bathtub (in season 1 and again in season 2), but there is no nudity (nothing shown below the shoulders). Also in season one Lyra is forced to remove her clothes when she arrives at Bolvangar and given a uniform, but no nudity.
