It is episode two of Neil Gaiman's fantasy series, based on his book with Terry Pratchett, and England's long history of witchcraft starts to play its part in the looming apocalypse. If you can stomach how arch and mannered it all is, the sparkling, high-budget visuals offer a blizzard of clever ideas.
