Contunuing the Philip Pullman theme, the Book God and I really enjoyed the BBC’s adaptation of The Shadow in the North on Sunday night. I know there have been unfavourable comments about the casting on some message boards, but I didn’t have a problem with it; the RSC and other theatre groups have been taking similar decisions over the past few years so it’s not really an issue for me. I saw it as a piece of good fun, though it helps to like Billie Piper as I do (being a huge Dr Who fan). I haven’t read any of the Sally Lockhart stories so far but will definitely pick up the two that haven’t yet been dramatised and give them a go.

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
