I agree that the casting of different actors as Michael, Mona, Brian (especially Brian), Mrs. Halcyon, Dor'thea, Emma is a jolt. However, it's a done deal, so get over it. All in all, I'd say this second set is as enjoyable as the first, and moves more quickly, with as many over the top surprises. I read the book after I saw the show, so I was howling at the TV in surprise as the big mystery about Burke's amnesia played out with the most hilarious spin on a cult anyone could come up with. I can't think of another TV mini-series that is this fun. And a note for fellow gay men: this is required viewing. People who watch light entertainment and treat it too seriously... well, they have a perspective that I think is misplaced.
