That's the ones Noom. Any one who thinks (like me) that PJ and the Coven made a complete mess of adaptation should listen to these to see how much better it could have been done. Not perfect (not entirely sold on their solution to getting in the info normally put into a prologue) but overall highly, highly recommended. If anyone at the BBC reads this- animate that series!!(And hire me! You'll need me to tell you where you're going wrong
) A fantastic cast (and best of all you don't even have to pay them all as some have shuffled off this mortal coil). So come on Beeb- do something good for once with all that tax money.
To bring this back (slightly) to the thread topic, it might however be tricky in the imagination after listening to the plays to have Ian Holm's Bilbo in mind (he is brilliant at it and the best hobbit in the films) and Ian Holm as Frodo (also brilliant, shame he didn't find time for a chat with Elijah on how to act the role).
