Critic Reviews for The Daemon-Cages

His Dark Materials occasionally gets a little too dry and self-serious, so having "The Daemon-Cages" take place almost entirely in a dystopian sanitarium is a clever, jarring choice.

Jan 18, 2020 | Full Review…

The best thing "The Daemon Cages" does is pair Mrs. Coulter and Lyra back together, and Ruth Wilson and Dafne Keen do impressively antagonistic work together.

His Dark Materials seems to be working with some save the best for last blueprints, because lately, the show's been better than ever.
