Maybe this is the one to put my faith back in epic TV adaptations. After the shambles of the last two seasons of Game of Thrones.


Oh my goodness it looks so good! I am really excited!
That last trailer made me cry a bit as I remembered how I felt when I was reading it :oops:

So is it going out on the BBC then?
