Trivia

What Caris witnesses was not the battle of Crecy but skirmishes beforehand. Crecy is a fair few miles away from the somme River that was the focus of the action in the series. Edward had to cross that river first. In the battle of Crecy the French attacked the English positions not the other way round See more »

Disappointing
6 September 2012 | by davenullsteinSee all my reviews

I greatly enjoyed the "Pillars of the Earth" miniseries without having read the novel and was then inspired to read World Without End which I loved. However, having watched the first episode of "World Without End" miniseries, I am dismayed to find a greatly altered beginning, minor characters transformed into major ones, and drama that just didn't occur in the book. I'm also not thrilled with some of the casting choices.

Otherwise, the production looks pretty good. You will probably enjoy it if you haven't read the book. Be prepared for possible disappointment if you have.

I supposed I should go and read Pillars of the Earth now and find out what I missed.
