Compared to the other ones it didn't work well at all (incidental trivia: the woman was Moaning Myrtle). I just saw that 1950's television one on video which I LOVED. Great idea.
And yeah, it's a shame about Billie. I've been really impressed by her acting for the past two seasons, and her character had such brilliant depth to it... I can't wait to see who the replacement is though!
