After a lackluster first episode we continue the journey of BBC’s newest adaptation of one of the most classic Christmas stories in the world.
A Christmas Carol is a necessity in many houses at Christmas time whether it be the actual story, one of a million adaptations or indeed the Muppets own version which just so happens to be this sites favourite version of all time.
The BBC once more has adapted the story for new audiences with Scrooge himself being played by Guy Pearce.
Was it worth it though?
Was there ever to be a happy ending when children have to rise up and fight for their own freedom against the greed of adults?
Nothing ever changes when it comes to Lyra and her luck. One step forward and two steps back as she exchanges one prison for another.
Lyra has ended up at Bolvangar after being kidnapped by Samoyed hunters.
She’s finally in the centre of all that is happening. Can she make it out alive or will she suffer the same fate as Billy Costa and a whole bunch of other children who have been separated from their Daemons?
BBCs big War of the Worlds adaptation is ending with this third installment. With George and Amy together in the past and Amy and Ogilvy in the present we have little to care for and I’m kind of glad it is over.
We have a Armoured Bear and are now marching even further North. Can Lyra help find the missing children?
