Television: The Ruby in the Smoke

Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart books are going to be a television series. These books are full of atmosphere and swirling London fog. I always wondered how he came to write these books. The Independent reports:
Pullman wrote four Sally Lockhart mysteries after originally creating the main characters for a play. The BBC has bought the rights to the series, and the second title, The Shadow in the North, will be filmed straight after the first, also as a stand-alone drama.

I have not read The Tin Princess. Jim was my favorite character from the original trilogy.I loved listening to the audio versions of these stories. Anton Lesser is the brilliant narrator of the first three. I hope he has recorded this one too.
