Last Dragonslayer

At last something good in 2016

2016 has been a horrible year. Brexit. Trump. And the death list of Bowie, Prince, Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, Leonard Cohen, Glen Frey, Rick Parfitt, Christina Grimmie, Chyna, Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood, Gene Wilder, Kenny Baker, Robert Vaughn... I have my fingers crossed for Carrie Fisher.

Music this year has hit a new low; other than Passenger and Christine and the Queens everything I've heard has been appalling. And Louise didn't win Strictly.

But at long last there has been something to smile about. The Last Dragonslayer on Sky 1. Very much in the same style as their adaptations of Terry Pratchett's works but better (and blessedly free of David Jason). Jennifer Strange is my new heroine.
