Is that a repeat of the one which was serialised, or a new one?

Edit - answered me own question

"epic sequel to The Pillars of the Earth, set in medieval England"

Jolly good :-D


GoldenGirl1 Report 12 Jan 2013 11:38

Its a new one according to my magazine,1 of 6.


GoldenGirl1 Report 12 Jan 2013 11:38

Ooops there you go then :-D

Now i remember, they were building a Cathedral

thanks for that DET :-)

Lol - reminder set, and 'Oranges and Sunshine' to be recorded.

Decent things to watch are a bit like number 9 buses. Nothing for ages, then 2 come along at once :-D

You can say that again, last Saturday was so bad on TV we
ended up watching DVD's.
You expect that in the Summer as most folk are out and about
but Winter should be one of the best TV viewing times, imo.


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jan 2013 12:32

Well did anyone watch it and what you think?

Just seen this thread. I'm afraid to say - I messed it!
Read the books and loved them.

Hope that you enjoyed it.

OH listened to it from the next room and was put off by the amount of blood shed and violence.

From what I can recall from the book, there were more peaceful interludes than shown, but then they are not good visual events for TV!

Like the previous series, the voices seemed rather muffled even though the music was OK.

I'll stick with it next week, but if it carries on in the same vein, will give it a miss after that


Merlin Report 13 Jan 2013 12:47

I watched it and thought it was pretty good,another episode same time next Saturday, will be watching it all being well. **M**.


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jan 2013 13:20

I really enjoyed it and was ready for violence etc, will also
be looking in to next weeks episode.

We watched it. Bit gory wasn't it. I wonder where the sets were made?

I certainly wouldn't have liked to live there in those days. No trial, just hang 'em

Could be very good so will keep watching

Kingsbridge is in Devon innit.

Read the Pillars of the Earth and found it really annoying. Lots of filler pages.

I remember at one point the son went into the cathedral and up to the bell tower, and it took about 10 pages of filler.

So this put me off the original series and therefore will not be watching this series.

Ken Follett is a great writer and I have enjoyed lots of his other works, but these 2 just got me very annoyed!!!
