I haven't yet read Gormenghast, though it's "on the list".

I didn't watch the TV show yet because I prefer to read things before
I see any film/TV adaptation and I figure it won't be too hard to
track down a copy of the film when I do finally read the book.

But I wanted to alert the truly curious to another adaptation of
Gormenghast, namely the "rock opera" version.  The sample tracks I
downloaded didn't do a thing for me, although the composer, Irmin
Schmidt, is a musician I very much admire as one of the founders of
the seventies-era German rock band CAN, which this stuff sounds
nothing like at all!

And follow the Gormenghast links for information and downloadable
