Re-Treader

The trailer for the next installation in the Narnia series - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - is now up.



We've been re-watching the old BBC versions of the books.  The special effects and costumes are pretty dire, but (some of) the performances are really very good and overall I'd still rather watch the old films even when it's for the 8th or 9th time.

We're anxious to see who will be cast as Puddleglum in The Silver Chair as Tom Baker* absolutely owns that part.  You can catch a little bit here.

And if you're looking for copies of the C.S. Lewis  Narnia novels, there is an excellent set of re-issues featuring the original Pauline Baynes illustrations.



*Tom Baker was, of course, the fourth Doctor.
