WE all know Hol­ly­wood loves a re­boot. But it’s equally true to ar­gue that a six­part se­ries al­lows greater flex­i­bil­ity to ex­plore Um­berto Eco’s sprawl­ing novel than a cine­matic re­lease ever could. Here, the al­ways bril­liant John Tur­turro plays William of Baskervill­e, an en­light­ened monk in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­ries of griz­zly deaths in an Ital­ian abbey. It is beau­ti­fully shot and Tur­turro turns in an­other com­pelling per­for­mance.
