I'm intending to pretend it doesn't exist from now on. Only good reason for me to acknowledge it is if I wanted to have some carthatic schadenfreudetastic grandstanding nerd rage, and I mostly don't want to be that person - leave it for those who can enjoy it - so I think it's best to wash my hands off it.

Certainly incredible though that a show manages to give so many reasons not to believe in it before it's even on the screen though.

Read more about how they have meddled w roles and wanted to cry. Going Postal and Hogwatch so well done years back.

BUT this is BBC America which explains this disaster. All subtlety lost. Hate it with a vengeance and I am usually tolerant of new versions of old favourites. Cannot bear having my beloved characters destroyed. Will ignore as well. Commiserations Peat,  with you all the way.

It is ugly as sin and I plan to correct that a little over the coming weeks, but alas WP is really the only game in town for getting follows.
