Can't view the link posted(location block) but I've seen other things related to the new BBC version. Not seen it yet as xmas has been busy so far, so I reserve criticism or praise. Afew things I's say beforehand:
Not a fan of these creators. I've yet to buy in to the success of Peaky Blinders. Very successful over here. Tried it, but didnít get more than acouple of episodes in, and that bandwagon passed me by.
Not against grim and gritty for this story in and of itself. I think it lendsitself to that to a degree. Itís a ghost story, a morality tale and its set in Victorian London.Thereís a lot of dark background in any of those concepts. The one I had growing up scared me. Itís totally unthreatening by modern standardsbut for a lad of my time, it was scary and had grim elements.
Despite the above my favourite filmed version is the muppets one. It will take a lot to usurp that as my favourite version.
Edited to insert missing spaces - my space bar does not seem to register as often as it should.
