The Devil's Whore

320 members1 season4 episodes

The combination of a strange title and the English Civil War subject matter might not get everyone's lips smacking with glee. And that would be a shame, because The Devil's Whore is a treat, an intelligent, richly textured labour of love from writers/creators Peter Flannery and Martine Brant. Andrea Riseborough - so good as a Margaret Thatcher in The Long Walk to Finchley - shines as Angelica Fanshawe, a young woman abandoned as a child by her fanatical mother and haunted by apparitions of the devil ever since. Marrying into aristocracy, Angelica is pitched headlong into a divided Britain. Cromwell (an impressive Dominic West) and the Roundheads are dismantling the social and political order, while Charles I (Peter Capaldi) clings to the throne. Angelica's life is disrupted, and not least by the enigmatic mercenary, Edward Sexby (John Simm).

Aimer l'histoire d'Angleterre n'est pas nécessaire pour apprécier cette série se déroulant pendant la guerre civile. Il s'agit plutôt d'une saga centrée sur la vie mouvementée d'Angelica Fanshawe avec son lot d'amour, de trahisons, d'aventures .... De plus, les personnages centraux sont interprétés par des acteurs de renoms, notamment le beau et talentueux Michael Fassbender (vu récemment dans "X Men le Commencement et Days of Future Past", "12 years a slave", "Cartel") dans le role de Thomas Rainsborough! Alors n'hésitez pas !!
