Gormenghast is a four-episode television serial based on the first two novels of the Gormenghast series by Mervyn Peake. It was produced and broadcast by the BBC.
First broadcast in early 2000, this BBC serial of the modernist fantasy by Mervyn Peake was designed for an early evening time-slot in much the same vein as the earlier adaptations of The Chronicles of Narnia. The BBC conception was based on the idea that Peake's early life in China had influenced the creation of Gormenghast; thus, the castle in the series resembles the Forbidden City in Beijing as well as the holy city of Lhasa in Tibet.
