His Dark Materials Star Dafne Keen Teases Show Premiere On BBC

His Dark Materials Star Dafne Keen Teases Show Premiere On BBC”

The eagerly-anticipated adaptation of Philip Pullman's beloved trilogy of novels made its debut on BBC One last night (3.11.19) but there was a mixed reaction from viewers.

If you have an HBO subscription, you can live stream His Dark Materials on HBO GO or HBO NOW. Despite a good cast (Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig), it fizzled, leaving the story - and franchise - hanging.

His Dark Materials is produced by Bad Wolf and New Line Cinema for BBC One and HBO.

The networks have just released the show's opening sequence and it looks like a visual masterpiece while also giving us Game of Thrones vibes. How can you watch His Dark Materials online?

Lyra is the unexplained linchpin of the grand forces at work, and comes under the protection of Mrs. Coulter, played by "The Affair's" Ruth Wilson, who does more than anyone to make "Dark Materials" (pardon the expression) bearable.

During her search for a kidnapped friend, Lyra uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

Once in the North she meets charismatic aeronaut and adventurer Lee Scoresby (Lin-Manuel Miranda) who joins them on their epic journey and who becomes one of Lyra's closest allies.

When the glamorous and mesmeric Mrs Coulter (Ruth Wilson) enters Lyra's life she embarks upon a unsafe journey of discovery from Oxford to London.

For now, watch a first trailer of His Dark Materials below.

"High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" (8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, WEWS Channel 5, Disney Channel, Freeform): One of several series ordered for the Disney+ streaming service launching on Tuesday, Nov. 12, this spinoff from the TV movie franchise gets a sneak preview across the Disney platforms.

"There is time and space to do the books justice and the first episode, in all its steampunkish glory, gave every sign that the potential is to be realised", said The Guardian's Lucy Mangan in a five-star review.
