Anyone else excited about this? Have to admit I can't really remember how the original story plays out, but it looks good.

Won't be watching 'live' - it's on at 6.30, so must be reasonably tame, but probably still too scary for my DCs, so will watch on catch up.

When does it start?

6.30 tonight on ITV (I was a bit surprised at the time, thought it'd be more a 9pm type thing)

oneowlgirl Sun 25-Oct-15 16:35:28

That is early - I'll put it into series record. Thanks!

not sure it is family viewing confused

I really enjoyed that, but I'm surprised it was on so early. It was very frightening and very dark in places.

I really enjoyed it but was surprised at its teatime slot, it was a bit dark and violent in places.

Basically I just parroted Asheth! grin

So I'll add that Mr Jekyll/Hyde was most pleasing on the eye!

According to the wonderful daily fail theres been loads of complaints to Ofcom about the violence and gore shown at that time of night, before the so called watershed.

I didn't watch it and glad, cos my DC would've freaked out.

I'm not surprised. I'm pretty laid back about such things but even I felt that ... spoiler for those that haven't watched...


People being tied up and left in a burning house to die was not tea time viewing!

It is one of my most favourite books and this series is desperately awful sad! It felt very cheesy. I gave it the benefit of watching the first episode but not watching again thlhmm.

I'm just watching now. What were itv thinking airing this at 6.30? Very frightening and definitely not family viewing!

Not sure if I like it or not. It is quite cheesy and over the top. But I think I read somewhere that Charlie Higson was going for cheesy somewhat.

It's got a good pedigree but I did find it silly. Will give it another chance, looks like more "monsters" next week

I watched this on catch up last night - really enjoyed it! But, I am ashamed to say, I was fairly terrified by the bit with the man/dog harbinger being approached by men in gas masks. Honestly, if I had watched this as child, I would have been imagining it lurking at the foot of my bed for weeks... ok, that is what actually happened last night blush

Not sure about it. Good cast so should be good..... But, just not sure.
Watched late last night, on sky planner, so hadn't realised 6.30pm - but that seems most inappropriate.

I just watched it.... Certainly not suitable for a 6:30 viewing.... My DD9 was quite scared, and she watches a lot of older stuff.

Asheth Sun 01-Nov-15 19:45:42

Anyone watching tonight?

fuzzpig Sun 01-Nov-15 20:13:40

I haven't even seen the first one yet blush DD uses the laptop for audio books so can't use catchup when they're in bed. hmm

It's been cancelled?? WTAF? I Loved this!!

Bunbaker Mon 16-Nov-15 20:45:22

It has just been postponed due to the events in Paris;

MarkingMyPlace9 Mon 16-Nov-15 20:49:26

Oh sorry, I read (In the Mirror I think) That it was cancelled, Jumped the Gun a bit there lol grin
