The BBC needs to proper Hollywood's 'Golden Compass' wrongs
The Golden Compass was a important flop, however fortunately Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy of fantasy books, His Darkish Supplies, is being given one other shot on TV. The BBC has commissioned an eight-half collection based mostly on the entire works, which might be made in Wales by Dangerous Wolf and New Line Cinema. The story begins with Lyra, an orphan that lives in a parallel world and finds herself shortly swept up in a thriller surrounding unusual “Mud” particles. She ultimately encounters Will, a boy from our world, and the pair go on an epic journey spanning numerous worlds and creatures. A TV mini-collection ought to give the producers more room to discover the characters and their relationships. One concern, nevertheless, is the price range — except for Physician Who, the BBC hasn’t delivered many fantasy TV exhibits on the extent of, say, Recreation of Thrones. His Darkish Supplies covers a dizzying variety of locales that, with out the right funding, might be fairly tough to tug off.
