Spring adaptations

The spring schedule will see a number of adaptations of contemportary novels on our TV screens, reports Sally Kinnes in The Times.
“I think people in television are always keen to adapt contemporary novels, but most don’t have enough story to make even a two-hour movie,” says Andrew Davies, the medium’s best-known adaptor. “You get airport novelists like Jeffrey Archer, with masses of plot, but the characters are so crude and the story is so awful, they insult your intelligence.”
