Bram Nope! I must have missed out. I've been going through the histories in historical-chronological order, so this is my reward for wading through the Henry VI trilogy.


Bram Awesome. Luckily, Henry VI is decent after a disastrous opening with the ridiculously-rendered Joan of Arc.


Bram And the badly-written guy :)


Bram Ah, that looks interesting, thanks!

Moira Russell Aww, I like the Henry VIs. Eileen Atkins was riveting as Joan in the BBC 'Age of Kings' TV production.

Oooh! I have to look for that!"


It's really, really fantastic. Here is a good review:

And someone also reviewed it (sadly not the whole thing) on their blog, but I can't find it right now. Even abridged, condensed, and shot on a tiny stage, the series is just marvelous, and features a lot of major talent (Judi Dench as Katharine in Henry V is just one example).

Thank you."


I do hope you enjoy it!


Melissa Jackson Why only four stars?
