Firstly, I am really sorry that this is late. I had no access to LJ at all yesterday.

So this is Mr Gatiss's latest project. It was on BBC2 yesterday. What did people think?

Raks's confession - I have sky plused it. I have not yet had time to watch it!

At the moment I'm not sure. Watching the programme with others who had not read the book, I felt that they could have no idea of the motivations of most of the characters. I hope that, for example, Mrs Agnes Rackham's 'illness' and 'madness' are better explained. Agnes is in my opinion the real victim in this story. I look forward to the next episode to see how things develop. I'm especially looking forward to seeing more of the very unconventional Mrs Fox and her naive admirer Henry... :-))

I liked it but I wish I'd read the book first. Felt like I was coming in to it half way through a series, but then again maybe this is how the book feels when you read it. Hoping the second episode will help explain some of the things I'm not getting.
