This review is from: The House of Cards Trilogy  [DVD] (DVD)
Kevin Spacey eat your heart out; this original "House of Cards" was a classic from the moment it hit our screens. Ian
Richardson is brilliant as the Machiavellian Frances Urquhart, and the drama is sustained throughout the series. Michael Dodds was on Margaret Thatcher's staff when he wrote this, and it shows. His inside knowledge of Westminster reveals the truly dirty side of politics in an utterly convincing portrayal of ruthless ambition. Dodds was also involved in the US version of the series, starring Kevin Spacey, but it pales by comparison with the original.
