5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very special., 30 Aug 2013
I wasn't expecting to enjoy this at all but got sucked in by episode 1 and found it utterly mesmerising, eerily beautiful and the most awe inspiring TV I have watched in years. Mads is Hannibal and acts Anthony Hopkins off the stage so to speak. I don't much care for blood and gore but (why on earth am I watching Hannibal you may ask) but it's so intrinsic and beautifully staged that in some way Hannibal's murders are almost like works of art in themselves. The music, the photography, the cast......this is something very, very special and I can barely wait for series 2. You really would be a fool to miss this.

What facts are known and… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful idea!, 28 Mar 2013
Some of my favourite books I have often wanted to write a sequel too and for a brief moment it was almost as if Miss Austen was back with us. Great fun despite the fact that it isn't supposed to be a fun story and I couldn't put it down.
