Thank you, Sky Arts !, 19 Dec. 2012
What a treat ! Having read the book just before the series came out I was very anxious to see how well it had been adapted to the screen. I must say this series had exceeded my expectations. There's a perfect balance of British humour and Russian comedy that is perfectly in keeping with Bulgakov's style and universe. It is fast-paced and highly intertaining, while retaining a certain theatricality that really pays tribute to the book. Highly recommended !
