Cumberbitch Shines As Richard III

The latest instalment of “The Hollow Crown” (following on from the four plays, culminating in Henry V, which the BBC adapted in 2012) has tidied the Henry VI plays into two two-hour films. The result, as spied from a press screening this week before the films’ broadcast in early May, is moreishly thrilling – and features a dazzling turn from one of 2016’s most talked about actors. That’s the opinion of The Telegraph about Benedict Cumberbatch (pictured), who plays Richard III.
