Does the TV you watch influence the novels you read?Does the TV you watch influence the novels you read? Tom #questionnaire
No. If anything TV puts me right off. The Night Manager was an exception.
Don’t watch tv, have no time, too many books to read ???
Not really..might watch a TV show that’s based on a book if it’s not true to it then it’s binned .
Not one bit.
I mostly watch old reruns (comfort viewing) but when it comes to newer stuff it’s probably more a case of my reading influencing my TV choices. For example the excellent adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard series. I’m very hopeful that Robert Towne and Mel Gibson will move forward with their TV adaptation of James Crumley’s Dancing Bear.
Only to the extent that I might seek out a book having watched the tv adaption of it (or vice versa). In general I read the books I fancy 🙂
The Dalziel & Pascoe TV series got me reading the books and in my opinion, Reginald Hill is one of the finest writers ever…
Also read The Killing series which are based on the original Danish TV series (which I haven’t seen), great books…
No, I don’t watch television.
Maybe or vise versa , I love to read gruesome detailed crime books. So I like TV shows like criminal minds, bones, greys anatomy , blue bloods, the good doctor.
No not at all

I say no but the programme Strangers has made me want to read the Peter May Chinan series!
The Peter May Lewis trilogy is very good…
No. I don’t watch tv.
No but sometimes the books I’ve read influence my viewing of documentaries etc.
Bodyguard was compulsive TV viewing, but I’d much rather read Ian Patrick’s Rubicon and Stoned Love in a similar genre.
No, I don’t watch TV. I’m too busy reading.
Good news! Addicts after my own heart. I don’t watch/have a telly either. I thought I was the only one (or at least a rarity).
@Tom No Tom, more and more of us don’t trust what we are being told. We’re being manipulated, so we don’t watch.
I think you’re right.
No I rarely watch tv
No, if anything it puts me off
