    I rewatched The Bride Of Frankenstein just last night and it's not long since I saw it's predecessor Frankenstein. I love these films even with all their faults. I've yet to see them bettered. I like the idea of this version being told from Igor's point of view but Daniel Radcliffe?

    Interesting to see how it turns out. Daniel done quite well in theatre in numerous plays, and has been nominated for a few awards and won, so seems quite versatile

    Apart from Potter I've seen him in The Women In Black and a World War 1 TV drama. I enjoyed them way more than Dreary Potter but he's still not a lead actor for me. Maybe at some point in the future he'll come good. It may be he's good enough now to carry this but I have my doubts. He'll certainly be a very young Igor.

    Does that come to mind when you see police officers, doctors or, I don't know, weather forecasters?

    I wonder if this will be anything like Danny Boyle's stage version which I thought was great.
