Excellent adaptation of the book
22 October 2007 | by fortean2See all my reviews

What a great series this was (and still is) - I still vividly recall seeing it when it was first shown and it still holds up extremely well today.

Whenever magic is portrayed on TV it often comes across rather poorly, no doubt at least down to lack of budget, poor production values, weak story, etc. However, in the case of The Snow Spider the magic was put across very well and was as believable as it could be.

Pennant Roberts not only directed this but also produced and he did a very fine job. The acting, on the whole, was very good and the dialogue and real-life situations perfectly believable within the context of the story.

Overall it was a beautiful and magical series, complemented superbly by the hauntingly beautiful music.

Highly recommended (if you can find it).
