Gripping Hilary Mantel adaptation


Thomas Cromwell, arch schemer and self-made ‘creature’ of Henry VIII, could have come off like Blackadder in a beret. But this richly-rendered, utterly gripping Hilary Mantel adaptation is anchored by an astounding Mark Rylance, bringing Cromwell to vibrant life. Claire Foy proves a fitting rival with her capricious, nasty and yet somehow sympathetic Anne Boleyn.
