What's on your mind?
'So Lyra and her Daemon turned away from the world they're born in, and looked toward the sun, and walked into the sky.' --- Last sentence of the golden compass. Suggesting that Lyra is a skywalker. What do you guys think?
I was doing Italian homework and I skimmed past the word for "Northern Lights". Turns out it's "Boreale", similar to Carlo Boreal... nice Easter egg from Pullman in there.
Anyway, I hope everything is going well here! Hopefully I'll be able to make some contribs in the holidays.

Hello everyone! I'll be featuring on a podcast hosted by our very own user Wschantz. We'll be primarily discussing the BBC TV series and fans' reactions to this new adaptation of our beloved book series.
I'll definitely be drawing on a lot of opinions from the episode discussions we've been having here, but if there's anything in particular that you would like to be discussed/pointed out, please post in this thread and let me know!
In the meantime, please check out the 50+ podcast episodes he has discussing the first two books in the series, and more:
For anyone interested in listening to the upcoming episode, be warned that there will be spoilers on how the TV adaptation so far connects to the original trilogy, and about everything that might happen in the future.

I did not notice any phones, radios, speakers or anything similar in Lyras world. Can anyone confirm this?

Dear fellow His Dark Materials Fans
I am a Research Fellow at the Open University currently working on a chapter for an academic book for Edinburgh University Press on reader and viewer reactions to BBC HBO His Dark Materials season 1. I would love to include as many views as possible so please complete my online survey - it should take less than 10 minutes
Thanks for your help

This is a continue from a reddit post i was reading, I recommend to read this as it has a good insight in other perspectives. https://www.reddit.com/r/hisdarkmaterials/comments/bsi3jr/why_do_you_think_mrs_coulter_and_her_daemon/
DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ 'THE SECRET COMMONWEALTH'
Basically taking the information from the His Dark Matierals Trilogy where it mentions how Marisa has travelled different places, seeing the zombi, and learning of Intercession. Following the point that she and her daemon aren't close, it could come from 'the betrayal' (where they split by their wishes). This would make sense and explain why she does not talk to him when they are alone and the glimpses of seeing them separated in the book
