Shadow and Bone review – fantasy epic not quite the next Game of Thrones
The Netflix adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling novels is filled with mystery, dark deeds and flesh-shredding monsters but falls short of fantasy’s finest hourThe phenomenon that was Game of Thrones has only become stranger since it ended – after eight pile-driving, epically drawn, epically expensive, incest- and direwolves-filled seasons – two years ago. It was a cultural landmark, the hit of hits, the high fantasy show of high fantasy shows. And then it all just … went away. There have been efforts to follow it, but they have all seemed half-hearted at best. It’s as if George RR Martin, DB Weiss and David Benioff stripped the larder bare to create their endlessly rich, meaty, winter-is-coming stew of battles, betrayals and bloodshed of more kinds than a single or entirely sane mind could invent. Those who would like to have crack at following up are still labouring to restock the empty shelves.The latest effort is Shadow and Bone, an adaptation and amalgamation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grisha trilogy, which provides the main storyline of the Netflix series, and her Six of Crows follow-up, which gives us the second plot strand. The most obvious change from the original material is that the central character Alina Starkov (played by Jessie Mei Li) has been made mixed-race; half-Shu and half-Ravkan. She belongs to the latter’s army but looks like the former – the Ravkans’ enemy. Her friendship since childhood with fellow soldier Malyen (Archie Renaux) helps her endure the petty and not-so-petty bullying that results from Ravkan racism. This is what is known as a Parallel or Analogy. It is like a Metaphor but more on the nose. Continue reading...

Prue Leith has recalled the time she stripped off after inadvertently attending an orgy in Paris.The Great British Bake Off judge told of how she was “so embarrassed” by what she saw, but got naked to blend in and spent the evening making excuses so she did not have to join in.Prue regaled Jonathan Ross with the tale on the upcoming episode of his ITV chat show, which is set to air on Saturday.She said: “I did go to an orgy in Paris, but I have to claim I didn’t know I was going to go to an orgy.“I thought I was going to a party. Went with a very nice guy, so thought that would be great.“All I can say is room after room of bouncing bottoms everywhere… on the floor, in all the rooms. I was so embarrassed.”Prue continued: “Anyhow, this guy, he thought it was fantastic. So he just vanished.“So there I am, 19 or something. So I went to the bar and somebody immediately said to me, ‘Why have you got your clothes on?’ I said, ‘I’m just going to change’.“I’d walk away. Someone else saying, ‘Why have you got clothes on?’“So I realised the only way to be invisible was to take my clothes off.“So I took my clothes off and walked around this party. Spent the next hour saying I was going to the bar, the loo, looking for a friend. I missed the orgy, although I was there!”She added: “I’ve lived a long time, doesn’t seem worth not enjoying it.”The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 9.35pm on ITV.READ MORE:Sue Perkins Reflects On The High Drama Of Bake Off's Bin Gate: 'He Really Lost It'KSI's Celebrity Bake Off Offering Was So Bad Paul Hollywood And Prue Leith Refused To Taste ItLittle Mix's Jade Thirlwall Swooning Over Paul Hollywood Is The Crush We Did Not See Coming
