Are you a Gormenghast fan yet?

June 14, 2000 at 7:27 pm by Tehanu  - 

This is more of a literary note, but I thought I’d alert you fantasy fans to a BBC series currently screening in the States which ought to fulfil our appetite for good onscreen fantasy while we wait for LOTR to start… Mervyn Peake’s ‘Gormenghast’ books are rich, ornate, enthralling fantasy – hard to read, but wow, this BBC production sounds like it’ll bring Peake’s masterpiece wonderfully alive. I can’t wait til it gets to NZ! I might even be forced to buy a TV!Check it out here

(Oh yeah. It’s got Christopher Lee (Our Saruman) in it, no doubt doing something deliciously EVIL….Nope, I’ve been informed I’m wrong. Lee gets to play a good guy. How often does that happen?)
