And now, after two celebrated television series, the cast have been unleashed in their first feature film from BBC Films.

It's all in a day's work for William Shakespeare, however.

It may be nearly two years since BBC Two first announced that it would be adapting Hilary Mantel’s Man Booker Prize historical novel Wolf Hall, but details about the series are only just beginning to emerge.

It was the best draft I had ever seen.”
