Five Reasons to Love The Devil's Whore

[05] The Cinematography

I don't think I can really do this mini-series justice by trying to put into words how
beautiful it really is. You'll just have to trust me on this - it's the prettiest thing
you'll have seen in a very long time.

[04] Michael Fassbender as Thomas Rainsborough

[03] Andrea Riseborough as Angelica Fanshawe

Too modern for her 17th century world, Angelica fits right in with the likes of Honest
John Lilburne and Sexby. During her first marriage, she tries to be the dutiful wife, but
her husband never seems to be satisified with her.

Andrea Riseborough is a brilliant actress and I loved her as Angelica. I think if anyone
else had played her, she wouldn't be half as sympathetic.

[02] John Simm as edward Sexby

John Simm has to be one of the best actors to come around in a long while and, as Sexby,
he's amazing. There are so many levels to him and John Simm makes every single one
believable (because how many times have you seen an actor who can pull off tragic but
falls flat when it comes to anything else?).

[01] Sexby and Angelica

If you've seen this series, you know exactly why this is Number One. If you haven't, why
on earth haven't you bought the DVDs yet? You really can't get an idea of exactly how epic
Sexby and Angelica are until you've seen it.

Still not convinced? Give Channel 4's 'The Devil's Whore' playlist a look.
