    "Brilliant"

    Wonderful retelling of the story of Henry II and his four sons. Thought that Mike Walker's play was excellent and absolutely fascinating. So glad I got it.

    What did you like best about Plantagenet (BBC Radio 4: Classic Serial)? What did you like least?

    What i best liked was, the accuracy of the mentioned events. The richness of the sound effects.


    What could Mike Walker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Mike Walker could have made better use of Isabella of Angouleme, Her youth and the fact that as soon as John snuffed it, she ran back to France


    Could you see Plantagenet (BBC Radio 4: Classic Serial) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?


    If this was film i would cas tMeryl Streep as Queen Eleanor, Robert Bathurst as King Henry, Aneurin Barnard as Henry the young king, Henry Cavil as Richard the Lionheart, Ben Lamb as John, James Frain as Earl Marshal, Faye Marsey as Isabella of Angouleme
