As per the BBC we'll have to wait until 2016!
Really? That´s a long time, I was expected it for next year...

I want to watch it too. B Cumberbatch is a great actor and I like Richard III as historical figure. This should be good.

I am really looking forward to seeing this. The cast list is superb.
 
Yes I am too Breffney,the cast is very impressive especially Dame Judi Dench!
 
I am pleased to have found this thread. Did anyone watch this, and what did you think ?
 
I watched the entire series, and found all of it unbelievably good, and was riveted throughout.
Every actor was well cast, but of the many standout performances, the VERY best was Sophie Okonedo, as Margaret of Anjou.

I only watched the first episode of "The Hollow Crown". I am sure it is going to be a really good TV drama. The acting and costumes are amazing.

"A chilling end" ? I don't know why, everyone knows the end, although I must admit the "history" sites have been working overtime pointing out the errors. This is Shakespeare not history, it is drama. And very good drama .
