.. to quote Widmerpool in the little known Anthony Powell SF cycle 'A dance to the music of time lords'.

This came to mind because the TV version of A Dance To The Music Of Time was insanely rushed. Whilst Brideshead seems very slow now, ADTTMOT went too far the other way. Much in the manner of Dr. Who - where the old ones now seem rather slow, but I think the last two episodes of this series were rather rushed and failed to do justice to the material.
