Darkness Visible 1
Last night I saw the first in the National Theatre's two-part dramatisation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials novels. So today I should be offering a carefully-considered critical analysis of the performance, commenting on its fidelity to the original, as well as discussing the quality of the acting, dissecting the production values, and revealing what I really think about James Bond being in it.
However, all that will have to wait, as I'm far too busy racing through the third book in the trilogy, before I get to see the final part at seven o'clock tonight. In the meantime, I think "wow" will just have to do.
