I'm on the side of the dissenters here. Malahide is nothing like the Alleyn character, and Lang is nothing like the Troy one.
He walks about like a stuffed cod in a suit, looking vaguely pained, and she looks as though she's sitting on a bunch of nettles half the time.
Although it's an interesting period piece, the camera work is claustrophobic in the outside scenes, presumably because of TV aerials, traffic signs and all the provenly of modern life. However, again, the characters are wooden and show none of the warmth of those in the book.
Good try, but let's hope that any new series gets the casting, acting and stories right.
