His Dark Materials TV remake billboards...

Sometimes television shows can turn out better than movies of the same names, be it Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Westworld or Friday Night Lights to name a few examples.

Often it's to do with the source material and having to cut so many important storylines and character moments to fit it into a movie, whereas as an episodic series can expand and explore more of these elements.

Let's hope then that the new television adaptation of Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials fantasy book trilogy fro 1995 to 2000 fares better on the small screen than the disappointing 2007 big screen adaptation of his first entry Northern Lights, dubbed The Golden Compass.

In the British series, HBO and the BBC revisit the parallel world ruled by the Magisterium where human souls take the form of lifelong spirit animal companions called daemons, who comfort and advise their counterparts.

Logan's Dafne Keen plays 'Lyra Belacqua', an orphan whose search for her kidnapped friend takes her on a wild journey northwards, meeting armoured polar bears and flying witches, uncovering a sinister plot to steal children and discover the magical nature of Dust.

The Golden Compass may have failed to kickstart a new film franchise in the vein of Harry Potter over ten years ago, but it looks like this TV drama will have some staying power as they've already finished filming the second season even before this series has even aired.

Let's hope this adaptation is as epic as the books its based on.
