Loved the latest episode. So good to finally see Iorek, Lee, Hester and Kaisa. Can't wait for Serafina to arrive now The panserbjorne look so good, these production values are cinematic

The scene of Lyra and Pan watching the northern lights I love anything wintry and Arctic based so I'm glad we've reached the heavily North based portion of the book now

I feel so sad for the golden monkey Although Mrs Coulter's cruelty towards him (which I don't remember being in the books?) is a great way to illustrate her self loathing and flesh her out even more.

I have a feeling episode is gonna be a particularly good one.
Spoiler:

It's called The Lost Boy which is the chapter of the book where Lyra finds Tony Makarios after he's been severed from his daemon and dies. The show has given Billy Costa's daemon the same name as Tony's in the book and he hasn't appeared himself so I'm guessing Billy will die next week


(book spoilers in the tags)

Right although I thought he changed from small fox size back to stoat size again and then back to fox size confusing!

Well last episode was devastating as I expected! Anne Marie Duff was phenomenal in Billy's death scene There's a fair bit of anger over the omission of him clutching a dead fish in place of his missing daemon and as much as I wish they included that, I thought the episode was still brilliant.

Really surprised by the official introduction of Will I wasn't massively interested in his scenes this episode just because the main storyline was so engrossing but I'm really intrigued by his early introduction. It works well too because what we see with him and his mother would have been happening while Northern Lights was taking place anyway.

Serafina finally arriving too She was great. Not 100% on them giving her short hair but the rest of her character design and Ruta's portrayal were perfect.

Bolvangar at the end was suitably sinister, can't wait to see more of it tonight.

Also I'd have no idea David Suchet voices Kaisa if I didn't already know. He's such a bloody versatile actor

So I've been neglecting posting about this for the last few episodes since I've been so awol but the finale was phenomenal Genuinely one of my favourite episodes of TV I've ever seen.

Where they might not have reached the full potential of certain big scenes from the book over the course of the season, Roger and Salcilia's deaths actually managed to be worse (in a good way) in the TV series. Even though I knew it was coming that scene still managed to genuinely disturb me. Salcilia's "Roger, I don't want to leave you" hit me especially hard.

But the whole episode was just brilliant. The character work, the emotion, the gorgeous visuals, everything. Oh and Dafne Keen was so so good in her last scene!

Yeah the whole show was great. I liked that Will was introduced in the first season, I guess his storyline was happening more or less in sync with Lyra's, and them crossing over to Citt at about the same time makes sense.
