A Brit a Day [#1016]

My local PBS aired this episode of ‘Shakespeare Uncovered’ last night. I gather that he’s a bit of a pain sometimes, but Jeremy Irons won himself the spot as today’s Brit because I enjoyed the show so much.

A Brit a Day [#916]

….and thus, the brit of the day, perhaps woman of the year, who made the brave choice to allow Tom Hiddleston to continue his journey from Prince Hal to King Harry, right through Henry V’s premature demise, is director Thea Sharrock.  I hope she is as pleased with her decision as I am.  These photos are all by Nick Briggs, whose work can be seen here:

Other photographers whose ‘Hollow Crown’ photos I have enjoyed include Charlie Gray and Ian Derry.
