    Following the dramatic success of the film (the golden compass, it got lost), it looks like Auntie Beeb is making a series of His Dark Materials.

    I've read the books and they are pretty good, so I wonder how they are going to manage putting it on the small screen. It has to be better than the film adaptation but I don't hold out too much hope.

    Me? I'm just looking forward to seeing Dafne Keen (who was totally excellent in Logan) more opportunity. Although the rest of the cast does not look too shabby.

    Are they doing all the books or are they just covering the first like the film did?

    Caught the first part on catchup @Kindler and watched a couple of times.

    It's pretty good and if it's 8 episodes for the first book only at least it's got a chance to play out fully.

    Thanks for the heads up - I get the feeling, I'll be binge watching the lot in one go.

    How do the characters compare to the film so far? Assuming you've seen it of course.

    No idea what it's like compared to the film and I'm probably not gonna see it anyways.

    Second Ep. was pretty good and I'll be following this one. Probably through iPlayer again, but at least it will be there for a while.

    At least they've got Mrs Coulter as cruel and vicious as she needs to be.
