Wolf Hall episode 6 review: Master Of Phantoms

25 February 2015 11:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wolf Hall concludes its superlative series with an episode that makes historical tragedy come alive...

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 Master Of Phantoms

A TV show that can make its audience feel every shaking, terrible moment of a death so muffled by historical wadding that it’s now more playground rhyme than human drama is something to cherish. And something to miss like a brother now that it’s gone.

Wolf Hall made Anne Boleyn’s beheading so rightly, wretchedly real that we could have been watching an online video of one of its horrendous modern day counterparts. With none of Debbie Wiseman’s delicately intuitive score to accompany Anne’s journey to the scaffold, deliberately, you could barely hear her final words over the sound of wind and flapping cloth. Director Peter Kosminsky positioned the audience as an onlooker in the crowd, complicit in an execution we all knew was coming, »

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht on Lionsgate Deal: ‘Maybe We’ll Be Kissing Cousins’

25 February 2015 6:36 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht talked up the mutually beneficial potential of its new relationship with Liongate following a stock swap deal orchestrated this month by Starz’s dominant shareholder, John Malone.

Malone swapped a 14.5% stake in Starz in exchange for a seat on the Lionsgate board. Albrecht noted that when Malone triggers a deal, “he tends to set a lot of energy in motion.”

On Starz’s quarterly earnings call Wednesday, Albrecht predicted that Starz and Lionsgate would look for ways to work together on programming and other initiatives now that they are “cousins” through the Malone connection. “Maybe we’ll even be kissing cousins,” Albrecht said after being pressed by analysts on the motivation behind the deal. “We will certainly take advantage of the opportunity to look at ways to work together to benefit Starz and Lionsgate.”

The companies have worked together on shows in the past, including the »

BBC's Poldark remake: stars speak of 'pressure' of 1970s hit

24 February 2015 4:07 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The White Queen’s Eleanor Tomlinson and The Hobbit’s Aidan Turner lead new version of classic Cornish drama

The stars of BBC1’s new eagerly-awaited adaption of Poldark have told of the pressure they feel in bringing the adventures of the brooding 18th-century Cornish hero to a new generation due to the success of the 1970s version.

The White Queen star Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Demelza, said at a screening of the eight-part drama in London on Monday night that she was “nervous” about the reaction, especially as her part was played in the previous adaptation by the late Angharad Rees.

Faye Marsay: “No Talk” of a Shona Return

23 February 2015 2:56 AM, PST | Kasterborous.com | See recent Kasterborous news »

Christian Cawley is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

Well this is very interesting. Actress Faye Marsay, who endeared herself to a big chunk of Doctor Who fandom during Last Christmas, has claimed that there has been no talk of Shona McCulloch returning to the show. Marsay – previously known for The White Queen – was praised for her honest portrayal of a potential companion...

Faye Marsay interview: Glue, Pride and Doctor Who

22 February 2015 7:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Glue arrives on DVD, Faye Marsay looks back at the show, as well as Pride, and Doctor Who...

2014 was quite a year for Faye Marsay. The wonderful Pride, the Doctor Who Christmas special and E4's Glue were amongst a bunch of highlights for one of Britain's fast-rising acting talents.

We chatted to her as Glue arrives on DVD. And we've found out if we're going to see the Shona Shuffle again anytime soon...

I spoke to you in the midst of Pride, a film I really loved. It struck me then and it struck me since that last year seemed to be a year and a half for you, what with that, Doctor Who and Glue. You've hinted in the past that since you left drama school, life has been a whirlwind. So where does 2014 sit in all of that?

I never expected that I'd be doing as many jobs as I did. »

Wolf Hall episode 3 review: Anna Regina

5 February 2015 5:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wolf Hall’s politics is every bit as modern as our own, as this week’s desire-filled episode showed…

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Anna Regina

The best historical drama finds the modernity in our past. It doesn’t treat history as another country, peopled by strange, unknowable natives dressed in outlandish gear and spouting even more outlandish attitudes. Neither does it make a pastiche of the past, using dramatic irony to mock our ancestors’ stupidity and failures. It certainly doesn’t shred its world-building by endlessly commenting on its fulcrum-of-history position (“I’m off to polish the bouillon spoons, Mrs Patmore, not that this new government dismantling the aristocratic classes will have need of those in future [shakes head] It wasn’t like this before the War” and so on).

No, the best historical drama, like the best drama of any genre, simply reveals us to ourselves. Mad Men does it, I Claudius does it, »

Wolf Hall episode 2 review: Entirely Beloved

29 January 2015 2:32 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Rylance’s Thomas Cromwell gains a new master and retains all the best lines as the BBC’s splendid Wolf Hall continues…

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 Entirely Beloved

Let’s start by conveying an apology from the BBC to the people of York. Fine place, that. Lovely Viking centre. Excellent Park and Ride.

After last week’s episode of Wolf Hall featured disappointingly few actual wolves, this week made up for it with a veritable menagerie. Animals featured were as follows. Horses (several), kittens (1), greyhounds (4), rabbits (2 - 1 real, 1 human in bunny ears), monkeys (1) and wasps (1 - my mistake, that was Mark Gatiss relishing every poisonous sting the script gave to antagonist Stephen Gardiner).

In Wolf Hall’s second handsome hour, animals and omens were both in fine supply, the latter used to show Cromwell’s honed powers of manipulation. After translating Wolsey’s (in hindsight, spot-on) dark omen for »

Wolf Hall episode 1 review: Three Card Trick

21 January 2015 10:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

BBC Two's Wolf Hall opens its doors to reveal a splendid, well-cast and surprisingly modern political drama…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Three Card Trick

Following a PR campaign so inescapable it might give pause even to the self-promoting Tudors themselves, Wolf Hall’s heavy, ornate door has finally been pushed open.

What do we find inside? Proof that the BBC was entirely justified in splashing Damien Lewis’ dishy Henry VIII and Mark Rylance’s inscrutable Thomas Cromwell over countless magazine covers. It’s tremendous stuff; a richly textured brocade compared to the flimsy, titillating chiffon of The White Queen and The Tudors.

Adapted from Hilary Mantel’s revisionist take on Cromwell’s career in the Henrician Court by playwright and screenwriter Peter Straughan (Frank, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy), Wolf Hall is historical drama at its best. It avoids cheesy dramatic irony of the “Anne Boleyn? Pfff, nothing will ever come of her! »
