His Dark Materials

This is one of the supreme works of imaginative fiction for both children and adults published in the 20th century.

Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds.

As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.

Hi!
Is this the show with Serafina in?
I heard a rumour that she casts spells in the Lithuanian language. Does anyone have any more info on this or knows where I can find out, please?
Sorry but I haven't read the books and haven't watched the program. Yeah, a heathen, I know!
Cheers!

...but the "We just fell in love and now can NEVER see each other again!" part of the story was overdramatized IMHO. :cool:


that is the bench nonsense?
There was a lot happening in that regard aside from the bench, that's what I meant.

3x8. Well, that was the season and show finale... Too melodramatic for my taste, but a finale I can live with. :)


You do not like your heart being wrenched by the so close but so far bench nonsense? ;)
I didn't mind the "bench nonsense"... ;)

His Dark Materials season 3 is expected to arrive on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK in Autumn 2022.

I have also just read that this is the last season

https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/fantasy/his-dark-materials-season-3-release-date-cast-plot/


There are only three books in the His Dark Materials - Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. They have covered the first two books in the first two seasons respectively, hence it makes sense that there will be only three seasons.

Also, Phillip Pullman (the author) has recently released two new books in the His Dark Materials universe, which are part of The Book of Dust trilogy. Book one - La Belle Savauge which takes place when Lyra is a baby, The second book, The Secret Commonwealth takes place when Lyra is an adult of about 20 (so after the His Dark Materials events), and the The third book hasn't yet been written.

All this to say that even though the show is ending after season three, it might not be the last time we see Phillip Pullmans work on the small screen.

I also recommend reading the books if you haven't already. I loved them.

if you have a money spinner, why stop

I enjoyed the first 2 seasons but I think season 3 fell apart because the book it is based on was badly ended, the author just didnt know how to end it in a satisfactory way that was not banal. At the end of season 3 we are told that lyra and her boy friend went on to live fulfilling lives inspite of never seeing one another again. I dont think so: sitting on opposite sides of a bench is hardly living a fullfilling life? is psychologically simple minded

I wonder if he will fix this error in the third book of The Book of Dust trilogy. I reckon its highly unlikely though because if I remember correctly she is in love with Malcolm (or he is in love with her - can't remember)
