World Without End is the follow-up to the excellent The Pillars Of The Earth, which itself made a successful transition to the screen. And while the television adaptation isn't totally faithful to the text, there's a lot to like here. It's a rich, engrossing drama, made firmly for adults, and an extremely entertaining one. Sure, there are points where it can feel a little over the top, and it's competing in the midst of a strong time for such historical shows on the small screen. But it's a consistently entertaining piece of work, with the cast led ably by Ben Chaplin.
The disc release is fleshed out by the welcome inclusion of a good, solid behind the scenes look at the making of World Without End. As the name suggests, this digs into the behind the scenes story of the adaptation, and it's a nice accompaniment to the main attraction. That main attraction? It's, at its finest, a glorious slice of historical anarchy, brought to the screen by people who clearly, clearly know what they're doing. --Jon Foster

get the book instead. The script writers have basically re-written the book and it's now something completely different. If you enjoyed the book DON'T get this!Published 11 days ago by biggestcustomer
