My Geeky Side

Good afternoon. I'm letting my geeky side out in this post :P

Two weeks ago I finally started reading Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. I bought it about 6 years ago after it won the Richard and Judy Book Club Award. I'm only 200 pages in but I'm loving it. It's about two women, Alais and Alice (one in the 13th Century, the other in present day) in France and how they reveal the secrets of the Holy Grail.

So last week I decided to look on IMDB to see if anyone was working on an adaptation. Lo and behold there it was. Turns out it's being created right now as a TV mini series by the same companies who worked on Pillars Of The Earth (a great TV series based on Ken Follett's novel of the same name). Here's the site for it.

It stars Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter), John Hurt, Tony Curran and Emun Elliott (Marillion the singer in Game Of Thrones).

I'm getting so excited to see it. I read somewhere that Channel 4 in the UK have the rights to show it sometime this year. I'm sure it will be shown in other countries around the same time.

Here are the two Behind The Scenes videos:

Hope we get a trailer soon. This will definitely keep me going until Series 3 of Game Of Thrones next year!
