News & Interviews for Decline and Fall: Season 1
Waugh is tricky to get right on screen, but there was barely a bum note in this lovingly crafted hour of elegant, acidulous entertainment. One suspects Mr W would have approved.
As a Waugh fan, I was sceptical, but I have to say the cast are doing well so far, and many of the author's lines remain as funny on screen as on the page.
It's a hoot and a riot. It's satirical without ever spelling stuff out. And it's been updated with some sly, modern jokes.
Director Guillen Morales, working with a screenplay by James Wood, transforms Waugh's nifty saga into a curious mix of humour and caution.
