I wasn't much of a fan of the English Civil War during History lessonsat school. It was always difficult trying to decide which side tosupport. The glamorous, party loving Cavaliers or the serious,democratically minded, fair but boring round-heads....Watching TheDevil's Whore I found my self switchi...
I can't believe that I know so little about the English Civil War andthis series has stimulated me to learn more. The characters wereportrayed so well that I feel I want to know so much more about thosewho were real people. John Simm's performance as Edward Sexby haunts mebecause he spent so much ti...
English period productions have a reputation for restraint. While itdoesn't go as far as the almost-soap-opera The Tudors, restraint is notthe watch-word in The Devil's Whore. Instead we have plenty of sex,violence and even a few demonic visions, with some history thrown in.Concerning the events of ...
An extremely-engaging and well-acted drama about the period 1642-1660covering the English Civil War and the subsequent execution of KingCharles I and his replacement with England's only republicangovernment. Whilst the history has been simplified with many importantcharacters left-out, this nonethel...
The English Civil War has often been over looked as a subject fordrama, with most films being very inaccurate. The Civil War was aimportant watershed moment in English history, showing a king can beoverthrown, strengthen Parliament, reformed the English army and in theend limits power the power of k...
Excellently entertaining series with some interesting slants on thehistory but I appreciate that the writers did not set out to create adrama-documentary. Although they did incorporate some historicalaccuracy, anyone not knowing the real history of the Civil Warcould/would be very confused by some o...
Peter Flannery wrote one of the finest dramatic accounts of recenthistory, the epic television series 'Our Friends in the North', butsadly, his attempt to write about the English Civil War is a farinferior affair. To me, the essence of good historical drama is that itdistances us from our own times,...
An amazingly compact narrative packs a remarkable amount of emotion andphilosophical musing into a sweeping narrative; this is television thatdelivers all the satisfactions of the old-fashioned novel.With a title like "The Devil's Whore" we are prepared for a rip-roaringbodice-ripper...and while bod...
I'm accepting TDW as something designed for television and for thatreason necessarily had to compromise its script, sets and melodrama toplease the medium. Even assuming such, the story was captivating, theacting exceptional, and the sets and action convincing, if relativelymodest. A few of the comm...
The true story of Angelica Fanshawe, they say it is, but that issecondary to the real interest of this mini-series. Born close to theroyal court of Charles I, married within that closed sanctuary, closedespecially to what other people may think, and particularly repressivewith all those that represe...
Well, The Devil's Whore gets two cheers for trying – OK, make that twoand a half - and if in some ways it failed, I don't think it should getall the blame. It seems that what was conceived of a 12-part series hitthe financial buffers of necessity became a four-part series and,unfortunately, in ...
Well, I had high hopes for this mini series from across the Atlantic,and some of those expectations were met, but, as I should haveexpected, others were dashed.The production values are of high caliber. Costumes, sets andlocations, particularly for a British mini series, are all exceptional.There's ...
Look to the title - the devil has been added to be able to drawaudiences in. And Angelica is a sort of English "Angelique" - a pieceof human meat being dragged through history. modern dialog and modernterms are used. boring and primitive. subplots lead nowhere. but, okay,there is a amount of fightin...
This is a confusing historical period; the cavaliers were not bad orgood the roundheads were not good or bad. Neither was there a singlecause - religion, unfair tax and national debt, autocracy and trying todebase parliamentary powers, (sounds like Gordon Brown!!) . Puritains,church of England, Cath...
