Ok, so the irritating 118 sponsorship tries its best to ruin it, but in the first two minutes we have Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons (fantastic!) and Lord Palpatine Burghley.

Has he got a lightsaber in his doublet or is he just happy to see her? It's the voice - I can't associate it with anything else.

Didn't it seem.....

After Judi, I'm not sure even Helen Mirren can compare....

I know what you mean. The elements were all there on paper - the actors, sets, costumes etc. but it did lack a bit of a spark.

I'm more a Cate than a Judi man though, when push comes to shove.

It may have been the least screen time taken to gain an oscar, but by god... She was bloody marvellous.

I haven't watched it yet - saving it for later! As a child of the 70s Glenda Jackson will always be the definitive Elizabeth I for me, but I do like the look of this cast very much so have high hopes for it.

I thought it was very well acted and the characters seemed spot on for what I know of the people involved, but by God it was creative with the history!.
