Great acting, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever, Absorbing

See it if This is a beautiful adaptation, amazing music, Eccleston is perfect. It has some lovely audience moments. It's been changed in a great way.

Don’t see it if You are very bothered that the story should be exactly the same. It is but it's not, the end especially, but it works so well.
