Pillars of the Earth has returned to StarZ in North America, with multiple showings of all episodes over the next few weeks. Interesting to notice how Eddie Redmayne’s awkward-but-passionate Jack Jackson is such a Newt Scamander forerunner.
“He had very pale
skin, orange-red hair,and blue eyes that bulged
slightly. He had the alertly stupid look of a
dullard, Tom thought; the kind of child that either
dies young or grows up to be the village idiot.”
