Hello my fellow bookworms, adaptation lovers and any of those dropping over from the Book to Movie challenge; here are some more adaptations I have enjoyed this month:
Sleepy Hollow (Series 3 – Part 1) Not Read TV Series Television
Supernatural drama based on Washington Irving’s short story. The headless huntsman may be gone but now this small town must deal with Pandora and her box of evil monsters. Some of the solutions seemed a little convenient but I enjoyed the super, creepy creatures and I still love the hilarious camaraderie between Ichabod and Abigail. Part 2 will start in February. Okay watch.
Endeavour (Series 3) Not Read TV Series Television
ITV crime drama based on the characters of Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse novels, and a prequel to the ITV Inspector Morse (1987-2000) TV series. We re-join young detective constable Endeavour Morse in Oxford of the late 1960s as he solves some of his earliest cases. Another atmospheric and nostalgic series full of bloody, cryptic and surprising murders. Great watch.
These two TV series added to my previous watches this month makes my total 8. I have also been binge watching the BBC’s new drama Dickensian (Charles Dickens); and I am looking forward to starting new period drama War and Peace (Leo Tolstoy), Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands and the 3rd series of crime drama Shetland (Ann Cleeves). Plenty more adaptation goodies to look forward too!
