On The Thirty-Nine Steps

I wonder what you made of the new television version of the Buchan classic. Richard Hannay is one of my all time favourite book heroes. I was introduced to him by my English teacher at school, and have been a Buchan aficionado ever since. One of my new year resolutions is to join the John Buchan Society.

I quite enjoyed the TV version, but I love the Hitchcock film so much (and not just because of Madeleine Carroll) that it was bound to pale by comparison.

I like the Robert Powell version best!
