Any of you lot watching this? Or are there not enough laser shooting, time travelling, indesructible muscle bound so and so's


Wonderful TV of the drama variety, tremendous cast and performances, lovely treatment of a classic book, costumes and sets first class etc etc etc



The new songs are an abomination

Saw the film a few years ago - overlong, bloated and boring with instantly forgettable songs.  Most bafflingly over-rated musical in history.

I started to but it was so similar to the film/musical just missing the sing a long bits, I couldn't really see the point.

I have really tried to watch this, but finding it "miserable". And after the hair tooth scene I could not watch it any more. It does look wonderful with excellent acting


I think the Beebs "War and Peace" is a much more enjoyable Drama. Which is on the iplayer

The hair and teeth incident was as brutal as I have seen on TV, not for the faint-hearted
