That’s what I’m hoping for!! They could go on for years with so much material. I mean… My feelings about the movie are kind of like when you haven’t eaten for ages and someone offers you a piece of white bread. It’s tasteless and dry, but you’ll take it because there’s nothing else to sustain you.

I don’t know if you read His Dark Materials as a kid, by Philip Pullman. They made a movie of that (The Golden Compass) which was terrible. But then they brought out a BBC series and it’s just incredible. I’m genuinely considering writing about it, I’m so impressed. Maybe Darren will get the same treatment one day.
