The Devil's Whore - Channel 4 UK



In case anybody missed it 'The Devil's Whore' on C4 (UK) was a pretty good stab at an ECW drama.

Some history purists may disagree but I thought that the cinematography, characters and drama were all spot on. The thin veneer of supernatural activity was pretty good as well. In my opinion historical TV or film will always struggle to deliver an accurate history lesson when trying to also create an engaging and exciting drama. This was a pretty good stab.

One small complaint - could of had more battles.

Yes it was good and got the historical atmos ok; however I found the story week and lost interest after the first episode. As you say not enough battles !!
