Brilliant!
3 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this drama so much that here I am today doing a google search on it, just in case it's available on video (apparently not, dammit!). John Duttine and Jane Lapotaire in particular are just plain stunning in this production. Brian Cox also made a big impression. The set decoration also sticks in my mind. At times it seemed as if the actors had been transplanted to some medieval painting. Why on earth "Masterpiece Theater" has never showed this one in the USA is beyond me. If you are stuck with the Walter Scott or Legends of Robin Hood version of King Richard vs King John, prepare to have your preconceptions shattered here. Richard is shown as profligate and vain, while John is more sympathetically portrayed than you will ever see elsewhere.
