This review is from: Thorne: Sleepyhead & Scaredy Cat [DVD] (DVD)
I was also looking forward to the D.V.D. release of Thorne, however I must disagree with earlier reviews. These adaptions are not true to the books. I could state two major deviations from the books, but I will not spoil it for other viewers or readers. Having read the books, I do not remember Thorne and his best mate Hendricks ever having a fight! Just silly little things,like one of the officers changing sex and another changing surnames. The thing that puzzles me, is if a book is deemed good enough to make it on to the screen, then why alter the story and characters? (some of the Rebus adaptions where unrecognisable.) Ok, having said all that, I still enjoyed watching and I thought the actors all did very well. I have given this production three stars in the hope that they will make the rest of the books into films. But PLEASE stick to the Mark Billingham versions.
