Following the Archbishop of Canterbury's recent description of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials
trilogy as 'a near-miraculous triumph'
, it's hardly surprising that a conversation between the two at the National Theatre was more of a love-in rather than a debate. The transcript
is still a great read though, and contains gems like:
PP: Which leads us to Mel Gibson. Have you seen that film?
RW: I haven't seen it.
PP: Nor have I, so we can talk about it! That's all right.
RW: We're allowed opinions without the constraints of reality!
