Young Montalbano starts BBC4 Saturday 9pm - you know the usual foreign crime drama slot. Hope the actor chosen (Michele Riondino- dark and handsome if his pic is anything to go by) is believable as our hero in his younger days.
Will there be a young Mimi and Caterella? Obvs no young Fazio as he would still be at school
Shock - just checked and there is a young Fazio in it as well as the others - interesting.
It is also rated even higher on IMDB than the original so bodes well for great Saturday night viewing.
Bit disappointing but could be a grower. We'll have to see how it progresses. Lots of odd age/height stuff going on - the old shepherd must have been 60 if he was a day but 51 - I don't think so. Salvo & Caterella too tall, will they make Mimi short & fat? Good news - Mimi & Livia enter in the third episode. Missed Fazio Jnr(though his dad seemed a nice guy much like his son)plus the music & titles.
