The author himself on the dvd comments that he portrays stories in words while films do it in pictures and he is pleased with the production and that tells you everything.
I watched this as a Tv series and loved it then read the book, I enjoyed that and then bought this set to watch again and to some extent I can understand purists of the book complaining about the adaptation, its loosley based on the book with the main facts the same and obviously changed in some parts to suit the flow of the film.
If you enjoy a good drama then you will love this and the book too, they are both superb in their own way, I would recommend this to everyone
Watch this without reading the book and be entertained, but don't expect this to be at all a dramatisation of World Without End.
