I like the idea, but it wouldn't be the same without Patrick Troughton and Robert Stephens' wonderfully OTT performance! Mind you, they might be able to find some child actors who can, you know, act...|
Actually, the worst thing about BoD can't be fixed (unless they change it drastically from the original book) and that's the 'it was all a dream' ending. It felt like such a betrayal.
I didn't find the movie of His Dark Materials unwatchable, but it did feel like a 'greatest hits' collection and lost much of the narrative logic.
