The BBC version with the late, great Ian Richardson is superb!
I think Kevin Spacey (USA) is a good actor, but this series' is definitely better in its' 'Britishness', if you know what I mean! Cheers!
Watched the BBC version with the magnificent Ian Richardson in it. Saw him here on STAGE a few years' ago in 'The Hollow Crown'.....wow, just wow. Sir Derek Jacobi & Sir Donald Sinden were in it too. Interesting that when Sir Michael Redgrave toured with it back in late '60's, Jacobi was the youngest player in it. Full circle, somewhat!
Can't be bothered with any other actor in the role, even though Kevin Spacey is a good actor.
Nobody, but nobody, can do those types of dramas' like the Brits! End of.
