I always recommend reading the book before seeing the TV adaptation, as it can be almost impossible to not recall the imagery once the BBC have put their stamp on it.  A possible exception to this is Hilary Mantel’s celebrate...

R. Harlan...I thought the same thing. But as P.T. Barnum once said: "There's a sucker born every minute." She's nothing but a tart, but some knucklehead will fall for it; maybe a fifth or sixth grader. "...doing pedicures in some strip mall in...Arkansas." WaaaaaHaaaaa!!!
