Lorne Balfe is currently writing the music for the latest series of the hugely popular BBC/ HBO show ‘His Dark Materials’. Due for release in November 2020 this series will be mostly based on The Subtle Knife, the second book in Philip Pullman’s trilogy.
Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) has opened a bridge to a new world, and, distraught over the death of her best friend, Lyra (Dafne Keen) follows Asriel into the unknown. In a strange and mysterious abandoned city she meets Will (Amir Wilson), a boy from our world who is also running from a troubled past. Lyra and Will learn their destinies are tied to reuniting Will with his father but find their path is constantly thwarted as a war begins to brew around them. Meanwhile, Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson) searches for Lyra, determined to bring her home by any means necessary.
