    Anyone else been watching this? I saw the first one but missed the second episode. The last one was great and has got me looking forward to the final next week. I need to catch up with episode three first though. It's funny seeing Roy of the IT Crowd in this kind of role, well, for me it is...

    Haven't watched it, but I read the book last year and really enjoyed it. Tend not to watch things if I have read them, cos I get a fixed idea of how things should look in my mind and they are never the same. If that makes sense lol

    Yes, I can relate to that! I read Trainspotting (took me awhile with the dialect) and couldn't watch the film. I tried but didn't make it past the first 15 minutes. They've done a good job, I've not read the book but I think I might when I get the chance. I'm always sceptical of BBC dramas but this has been well-cast :) And some of it was filmed 2 minutes from me.

    I know, it looks great. I think I may be more open-minded about watching similar kind of stuff from the BBC in the future, as I always tend to avoid BBC dramas. Anything with Mark Gatiss in is going to be good to me :D And Gillian Anderson looked unrecognisable to me!

    The Mr Whicher thing that is on tonight (I think) wasn't a bad read and might be worth watching.

    Yeah I saw that advertised and thought that looks like it could be good.

    I read somewhere that the actor they got to play Mr Whicher doesn't do much tv work, unless he thinks it will be top quality. I may well foresake Glee and give it a watch lol
