Wolf Hall (DVD)
The major adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize-winning novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies starring Damian Lewis, Clare Foy and Mark Rylance.
Wolf Hall presents an intimate portrait of Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance), the brilliant consigliere to King Henry VIII (Damian Lewis), as he manoeuvres the corridors of power at the Tudor court.
Directed by BAFTA award-Wwinner Peter Kosminsky, this powerful series follows the complex machinations and back room dealings of Cromwell – a pragmatic and accomplished power broker, from humble beginnings and with an enigmatic past.
Cromwell serves king and country while navigating deadly political intrigue, the King's tempestuous relationship with Anne Boleyn (Claire Foy) and the religious upheavals of the Protestant reformation.
