MGN Review:

I'll put this out there, I quite enjoyed "The Golden Compass". I have no experience of the books, but can appreciate the negative comparisons if you are a fan of the books.

I had hoped with eight episodes that there would be more in the plot than which was covered in "Golden Compass", but sadly it is a re-telling but soooo much longer.

I didn't dislike it just believe it adds little to the 2007 movie and if you have not watched that then fair enough it is a decent watch. I look forward to season 2.

Ruth Wilson is superb as Mrs. Coulter and the CGI really good and convincing most of the time. Sadly although as the episodes went on I did get used to her I did find the Lyra character played by Dafne Keen a bit wooden and lifeless and cared little as to what happened to her which is a shame.

Ok but hoping the fresh story in series 2 will be more captivating.

MGN Rating 6.5/10 (if youve not seen "Compass" 7.5/10)
