Dark Action Drama
the production was very good and much darker than I had anticipated from the film of the first book. The volume settings had to be somewhat higher than I would normally have used primarily due to the soft voice of our heroine. Perhaps this could have been better handled during the production. Overall a really good listen and a very worthwhile purchase.

Deep, and indeed very "dark".
Well recorded series, and very absorbing: once you start listening, you don't want to stop. It gives a little insight into the Golden Compass.

BBC at it's best and worth a 2nd, 3rd, 4th listen
Quality of recording, the full cast, the adaptation from the books. All round entertainment for when there is rubbish on the tv.
