Helen Mirren is The Best Elizabeth Ever.
And Barbara Flynn makes a pretty splendid Mary Queen of Scots. Patrick Malahide as Walsingham, yum. This is quite some casting. Although I’m not entirely convinced by Jeremy Irons’ Dudley for some reason I can’t quite work out. [But he was pretty good. It’s probably personal bias: I’m just not much of a fan of Irons.]
Grand stuff. Love it.
