    I've been waiting for this. Let's hope they don't swerve the anticlericalism of the books like the film version did.

    Casting all looks great. This always needed a/several series rather than film/s. Fingers crossed!

    It looks so good. I wasn't sure about Lin-Manuel as Lee Scorseby but I'm warming to it.

    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.

    SpookyFrank Self-cleaning oven, the whole bit.

    Not in the books no. Although after the movie version with Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter Pullman stated that he got it wrong in the books and she should have been blonde all along.

    Adam Buxton interview with Pullman. I think he's a pretty decent bloke- politically sound but isn't a nob about it

    S☼I Where are the prophets? Where are the visionaries?

    Will be watching. I only read the trilogy once but it was brilliant. Made me cry; not just the end but the but where Iorek devotes himself to Lyra - so beautifully written.
