Christopher Eccleston: Duke of Norfolk



  • Norfolk : So cut off my head, and make me a martyr. The people will always remember it.

  • [about Elizabeth] 

    Norfolk : She is just a child and yet still you piss yourselves!

  • Sir Francis Walsingham : Your Grace is arrested. You must go with these men to the Tower.

  • [regarding Elizabeth's impending reign] 

    Unseen Gentleman : Your Grace, Protestants are already returning from abroad.

    Norfolk : Yes. And have made plans to massacre every Catholic in England. There would be butchery indeed if such a plan were even conceivable.

    Norfolk's Man : They say Walsingham will return from France.

    Norfolk : Walsingham is nothing!

    [aside to Norfolk's Man as he is leaving the room] 

    Norfolk : Be sure he does not.

  • Norfolk : In the future...

  • Norfolk : The Queen!
