Nah, haven't seen it yet. Think Murrin said it wasn't that great, so I didn't rush or anything.

If you like this, check out the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch...modern day magical realism. Very good.

I saw the first episode. Started slow, got better. But never went back - too much other stuff I guess.

Guess it wasn't you then. Very Happy

Sky...you haven't read the book? (There's only one.) Haha, ok.

I was hoping the series would actually improve things. I have seen a few in the last few years that actually did, blasphemous as it is.

The book is ok...has a lot of potential that I think ended up unrealised.

I loved the book.

The series was so-so for me.

YMMV
