Purchased this because I had recently read the book and had no idea that a dvd had been produced. Stays pretty close to the book, only minor variations. The characters were well cast but I found Ian McShane slightly not quite right in his part (I kept thinking of his role as Lovejoy) but this is just a minor flaw. All in all, pretty good and very watchable.

The Pillars of the Earth is an excellent series, for just about every age.
Ken Follett’s seminal novel; The Pillars of the Earth; has simply been wonderfully adapted and recreated for the small screen, in a series that pieces together just like a single eight hour movie, and remains gripping throughout; by using a grand setting, and a turbulent time in England’s history, as the setting for several character stories that are well crafted, well acted, and very easy to relate to. Having a tale that spans decades is one that’s often difficult to realize on screen, but handled well in Pillars, through the use of (at times questionable) makeup, and the building of the cathedral, which centralizes everything and everyone, and gives the characters a place to return to, something to focus on, and something other than the characters, for the viewers to really care about. The video and audio quality aren’t quite up to the high-definition standard that they could be (especially seen as how the series was filmed in HD, it’s certainly not The Pacific), but are suitably impressive for a DVD release, and will in no way hinder anybody’s enjoyment of the series; which comes accompanied with a small collection of well crafted, and worthwhile extras. In short, The Pillars of the Earth is simply an excellent series, that’s got something to appeal to just about anyone; a grand historical setting, some well placed battles, decent effects, bribery, politics and corruption, as well as coming-of-age tales, romance, and a high-reaching conspiracy that affects the foundations of the entire country; making it suitably appealing, and a show that’s not only more like a film than a series, but one that’s totally engrossing, able to rival The Tudors, and should be watched by everyone.
