I enjoyed the characterization of all the major and most of the minor characters (Cheung Sam Fung and his six disciples were particularly memorable both in of themselves and also for the sparkling chemistry/'brotherhood' between them). Simon Yam made for a very dashing Cheung Chiu San, he played the honorable but kind, righteous but not vindictive hero well. And his six Mo Dong brothers, who together were the "Seven Swordsmen of Mo Dong" were one of the highlights of the show for me. The seven were each given three-dimensional characters and they were played out wonderfully--especially the level-headed Mok Lin Chow (second disciple) and Yan Lei Teng (the soft-hearted sixth disciple who would later marry the daughter of the woman he mourned most of his adult life for). Carol Cheng plays Yan So So with finesse. Both she and Simon bring a fair amount of experience to their roles and their level of comfort showed well. Many shows cast inexperienced actors/actresses in minor roles that makes for an awkward introduction or (worse) an unbelievable background to the main plot. This version of Yitin does a remarkable job of assembling an experienced cast to do justice to the novel's many complex and sympathetic characters.
