Hi Don,

Indeed it is the same book. I must admit that it took me a few attempts to get past p.200 in Titus Groan, then the shear imagination took over. The BBC did the first 2 books in 4 hours (maybe a bit fast) and kept the whole essence. A marvellous job I thought.

Steerpike had the right mix of insincere charm and evil. The twins were right on, as were most of the other cast. Watching Alf Garnet (ie Warren Mitchell) as Barquentine was another delight. I'm certainly going to see this over again.
