Historical costume drama at its very best - startlingly well done. Highly recommended - Wolf Hall: Series review by RP

Based on the historical novels 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies' by Hilary Mantel, this is a 6-part BBC costume drama centred on Thomas Cromwell and his rise to power in the time of Henry VIII.

The central figure of Cromwell is superbly well played by Mark Rylance who, together with a terrific script, manages to portray a combination of resilience, determination, humanity and political astuteness. Very cleverly done.

The script is excellent (although the novels inevitably have more detail than the TV adaptation), the acting is excellent, the costumes are excellent and the locations well chosen. Natural light and candlelight have been used - so much so that some have complained that the image is too dark. I didn't find it so - but the lighting is much lower than in most films.

It is of course a drama rather a history, so whether this is a realistic portrayal is in some doubt - but it is startlingly well done.

Hilary Mantel is writing a further novel covering the period to Cromwell's downfall and it is expected that this will be the basis for a second TV series. I'm looking forward to it.

This really is historical costume drama at its very best. 5/5 stars. Highly recommended.
