I don't remember this well enough to rate it.

This is a limited series (4 episodes) from 2000. I don't remember it well, but I would say it was nominally fantasy, sort of dramedy, but mostly just weird. Anyway, it's based on some books I've never read. All I really remember is that it had some interesting characters (with interesting names), like Steerpike and Dr. Prunesquallor. I'm afraid I don't know what to say about it, but it had a really good cast. I'd definitely like to see it again someday, and write a proper review.
