2001 Sword of Honour Starring Daniel Craig on Acorn TV

William Boyd’s 2001 television adaptation of Sword of Honour is currently showing on Acorn TV (“[t]he best British TV streaming on demand”) in the United States and Canada. The two-episode show stars Daniel Craig as Guy Crouchback.

Earlier this year William Boyd (who’s also adapted Scoop for television) addressed the Evelyn Waugh conference at the University of Leicester on his writing process and the problems of adapting literary sources for film and television. An audio recording of his presentation is available here, and a video recording of the Q&A session which followed it is available here.

Acorn TV is a paid streaming service available on a multitude of devices including personal computers, Roku, some smart televisions and DVD players, iPad, and Apple TV. It costs $5 a month or $50 a year. Also currently showing on the service is the 1981 Granada Television adaptation of Brideshead Revisited.
