A really good adaption of tricky material.
15 August 2019 | by rayjaymor-91982See all my reviews

As a fan of the original books by Robert G Barrett I was both excited and concerned when I heard this series was being made.

I was excited because I've always wanted to see how Les would go on the screen. I was concerned because the source material would definitely need some tweaking to survive an audience in modern day. (Mr Barrett was obviously a 'blokey bloke' and whilst certainly good natured, some things won't pass muster today).

Obviously some purists will disagree, but I thought they did an outstanding job on this. The spirit of the books is definitely there, nods to plot points of the books are alive and well (they were largely all short stories and these, if my memory serves, have been blended a bit for episodes).

Definitely worth a watch, whether you're a fan of the books or not.
