His Dark Materials Season 1 TV Preview

Adapted from Phillip Pullman’s fantasy novels, this series is written by Jack Thorne (Wonder). It follows Lyra as she searches for her kidnapped best friend. The search leads her to other kidnappings all with links to a dangerous substance called Dust. 

More and more dark secrets come to the fore as the series progresses, including a major twist when we discover who Lyra’s father is. A secret organisation is also revealed, one that might just know the whereabouts of the missing children. Those of us that love lots of twists and turns in storylines will find the show enthralling and more than a little addictive.   

Starring James McAvoy (X-Files), Dafne Keen, (Logan) Clarke Peters (The Wire), and Ruth Wilson (Luther), this much anticipated series has arrived in Australia, and using the options listed in this TV guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.
