Don't know anything about the books, but I think it's interesting Lin Manual Miranda is being pulled into a purely dramatic role, with no music or dancing to be seen.

I read the books, a long time ago. I liked them well enough, but take umbrage with some of Pullman's philosophical views as expressed in the themes of that series.

Boar is badger, named after wood,
Not after forest but trees.
Where did you play on a rainy day?
Where did I eat bread and cheese?
Search inside, stay indoors,
Look up and find the secret is yours.
Your castle your fort,
Or so you thought.
The way is in four trees.
The way is in Boar in Brockhall
Under ale, under bread, under cheese.
