Caught the repeat of this last week, a few days after reading the Readers Digest version of the novel.
The second episode I think, the one in which Simon (Peter in the book) was found frozen to death, and the "discovery" of a perfectly visible, not obscured at all, mine entrance. A few clips of the next episode at the end - did I see the old George in a clip saying "this is why I never married or had kids?"
Key to the book plot was the George was married and had a baby child during the investigation!
And police corruption was never a part of the plot.
So why change an excellent and riveting book plot into something else entirely?I didn't bother watching the final episode.
