The Pillars Of The Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles which tears lives and families apart. In that time, there rises a magnificent Cathedral in Kingsbridge. Against the backdrop, love-stories entwine: Tom, the master builder, Aliena, the noblewoman, the sadistic Lord William, Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge, Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse. At once, this is a sensuous and enduring love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age. Follett masterfully weaves these stories through political turmoil of 12th century England, creating a relevant and viable world for today's audience and for generations to come.

I was a huge fan of the novel so was so excited when I heard they were making it into a TV series. I have seen the full series and would say that on the whole it stays true to the book, there were a few changes, but this didn't affect my overall opinion of the series. I thought it was brilliantly made, the casting was spot on, the set was amazingly realistic, the eye for detail was fantastic. Even if you have never read the book you will still enjoy this story. I can't wait to own it on dvd.

 Not half bad but nowhere near a classic

I quite enjoyed this. Well acted, lots of intrigue, not scared to show the harsh realities of the period but is quite annoyingly inaccurate historically. Not so big a deal for a lot of people but for me it's so damningly inaccurate it becomes a problem. King Stephen is so badly portrayed it's laughable but it's an entertaining series just lacking in historical characters. For me Sharon Penman is a far superior writer to Follett but, still, this is definitely worth a watch.

This is a Fantastic mini-series and well worth the watch.
Its also great to watch a mini-series without the fear of it being cancelled as this series is a one off.
Lets hope there is more like Pillars of the Earth in the future.
Highly recommended.

 Pillars of The Earth!

What an accurate and fantastic adaptation of a wonderful book!! This is well worth any money - it's thoroughly entertaining and has everything an epic series should have - tragedy, revenge, action, romance and comedy! Once you start watching it you won't be able to stop! The casting is superb ( an exceptionally rare phenonemon) the settings are perfect and the acting is of highest quality! I cannot praise the film highly enough - it cannot fail to impress!!!

 Worth the hype

The book is one of my favourite novels ever so when I heard they were making it into a TV series I was excited. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed! Excellent casting, wonderful sets and, of course, a great storyline. I watched all eight episodes in one day, it really is that addictive.
