Customer Review

on 5 August 2011
This production is only worth watching because it is the only one presenting the full text (well nearly full) to be available on DVD. The previous installments of the tetralogy by the BBC were quite good, in fact Henry VI part 1 is truly excellent, but it's a steady declension after that, as the story enfolds towards what sadly comes as an anticlimax. The fault of it really lies with Ron Cook who gives a very flat performance, with neither nuance, humour nor subtlety, and which besides gets completely outshone by the rest of the cast. Having no charisma, Mr. Cook resorts to playing Richard as a mere knave when we all know that he has to be much more formidable and multifaceted than that to become believable! The part should have gone to Mark Wing-Davey who played Warwick earlier on. He surely would have made a stronger impression on our imagination!
