HIS Dark Materials kicked off its hotly-anticipated second series last night – and one new arrival had everyone talking.

“The moment you realise that Lyanna Mormont, badass Lady of Bear Island, has been resurrected in His Dark Materials,” a second chimed in.
“Now that I know the child mob is being led by lady Mormont I’m a bit worried about Lyra and Will’s survival,” a third joked.
While a fourth wrote: “I can’t quite express how excited I was to have His Dark Materials back in my life tonight. And it DELIVERED. Also hi Lady Mormont.”
Lyra and Will clashed with Angelica and her crew after spotting them chasing down a stray cat in the street, with Pan baring his fangs to scare them off.
