Thread Name: BS: Gormenghast
Subject: Gormenghast

This has nothing to do with music (folk or otherwise) but I finally managed to watch Gormenghast over here (Canada) on Space - I saw the previews back in England over Xmas and thought no one could have the audacity to film this epic - my favourite work of fiction ever since I read it 25 years ago. The BBC managed to do the impossible in my opinion. The castle and its inhabitants were close to what I had envisioned. My only crique was the number of commercials. At least the BBC is commercial free. I'm just going to have to get the video when it is released.

Did any Mudcatters watch it , and what are your opinions.
