Before Peter Jackson unleashed the Lord of the Rings movies on an unsuspecting world, there was Gormenghast. Premiered in 2000, the joint BBC/PBS production was years in the making and featured one of the most glittering casts of any fantasy production. It included such luminaries as Ian Richardson, Christopher Lee, Richard Griffiths, Celia Imrie, Fiona Shaw, Stephen Fry, and many others. However, it received only a lukewarm response on airing, and Mervyn Peake’s fantasy masterpiece has lain untouched by TV producers and movie-makers alike ever since.
