Her Dark Materials is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Faye and Rachael discussing the His Dark Materials novels chapter by chapter, spoiler-free.

In this episode we chat about Chapter 1 of The Subtle Knife – The Cat and the Hornbeam Trees.

In the first chapter of The Subtle Knife, we meet Will Parry, a boy from a world that is very much like ours. Will and his mum flee from men who have broken into their house looking for information on Will’s dad. Will accidentally kills one of the men and runs away, stumbling across a window to another world which he climbs through. He meets our favourite girl Lyra in this brand-new world.
