An alternative to watch….
A 4 part TV drama from the point of view of Angelica (sangela Riseborough) focusing on the a group of people who start out radicals determined to free their country from tyranny, but end up in different places. For Angelica, it becomes a personal drama and a search for meaning in a world of sudden apparent opportunities; Cromwell (Dominic West) tries o re-establish stability and order after the chaos. Edward Sexby (John Simm) tries to assassinate the man he thinks has betrayed the revolution. It’s a great and colourful watch, and much more successful in building believable characters in extraordinary times.
