Mark Haddon on television

Well, no, it wasn’t Mark himself; it was his new written for television drama Coming Down the Mountain, which was on a couple of weeks ago.

I think I’d seen somewhere that it wasn’t going to be like The Curious Incident, but that was only true insofar that it wasn’t about Asperger’s. This time Mark had written about a Down’s Syndrome teenage boy, and with just as much skill.

We were all sitting on the edge of the sofa, wondering where this was going, but you can trust Mark to get it right. Just enough terrible confusion in the middle, before coming along with an interesting ending.

Hope you didn’t miss it?
