  1. Cormoran and Robin sitting in the office before Barclay disturbs them, and perfume buying at the end

  2. I’ll be interested to see if the astrological content will be included in the filming.. I imagine it would be difficult to film.

  3. The name of some of the actors have now been revealed. Apart from Robin Askwith as the older Steve Douthwaite, do we know who is playing who?
    I see Tom’s mum Anna Calder Marshall is also rumoured in the cast.
