This final part of Shakespeare's trilogy covering the life of Henry VI and the War of the Roses is probably the best of the three, dark and gritty and very real. I found myself so engrossed in the characters and action that I was hardly aware of the very basic, 'stagy' set that has been used through-out the three plays.
All the parts are well played; a special mention should probably go to Mark Wing-Davey as Warwick - he has grown with the role from a rather foppish courtier to a convincing warrior and `king-maker'. Julia Foster continues to be excellent as Queen Margaret, and Ron Cook is shaping up as an entertaining Richard III, part comical, part menacing.
Of course, like the other two parts it is very long - we watched in instalments - and it can be hard to follow if you are not familiar with the history, however I found it exciting, enjoyable and good drama.
