Did anyone see this when it was broadcast on BBC3 live?
I thought the 12,000 extras really got into the spirit of it but overall it was lacking in something and it left me a bit disappointed. Ultimately, It tried to be a Jack of all Trades experience and maybe that was why I couldn't connect with it?
On the other hand,in March I was lucky to go and see Frankenstein at the National Theatre. Directed by Danny Boyle, the lead roles of Victor Frankenstein were and The Creature were played alternately by Johnny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch. We had great seats and I can't sing its praises high enough. I'd forgotten what a good actor JLM actually is and Benedict Cumberbatch is fabulous. He is great on TV as Sherlock but in the flesh he was awesome
in the name of The Carver and the holey Gourd. Amen.
