Castle over Red Riding

People have no idea what is difficult and what is easy in script writing. ‘Red Riding’, Channel Four’s sumptuous serving of deproporn, must have been a relatively easy adaptation. It was sold as ‘difficult’ and so the audience was primed to expect plots that barely hung together, lots of landscape acting and angst, oh yes, lots of angst. ‘Castle’, a lovely bit of fluff starring Nathan Fillion, has been constructed with a great deal more care and attention to detail. Ironically because expectations are so low the writing has to be of much higher quality. Anyway I’m really enjoying it and for me that’s the most important thing.
