Well, I thought it was quite good because it seemed to have been put together by people who knew and cared about the book, and the 1930s film. It managed to insert some of the iconic imagery from both of them, such as the neck bolts, and the lightening shocking the monster to life, in a relatively plausible way. I thought it captured the emotional sense of the book - that pity and horror and the sense of blame. The police man 'What monster is responsible for this?'
ETA - this morning I discover it was written by the guy who wrote 'Bodies' (BBC2), a medical gynae-horror show that hardly anyone on my f-list watched.
