The Witcher is getting a TV show and I don't know if I should be excited

A bit of background for those of you who are not as nerdy as I am. The Witcher is a series of books by Poland’s answer to JRR Tolkien, Andrzej Sapkowski. They focus mostly on the adventures of a monster hunter called Geralt of Rivia in a dark fantasy world. It’s a bit like Game of Thrones but with the boring political bits cut out and the magic and monsters wacked up to eleven.

My hunting adventure

For anyone that doesn’t know this Saturday I was embedded with a group of hunt saboteurs (people who try and break up fox hunts) for a TV package. The sabs run a rather shadowy group, after an extensive background check they agreed to let me film with them but only if I hid their identities. So early Saturday morning I found myself shivering in the car park of Canterbury West station having no idea where I would be going or what I should be looking for. I was not left wondering long  as a group of group of nine black eco warriors in an ancient Land Rover rolled into the car park.
