Following its run on the Starz cable channel, the miniseries adaptation of the medieval Ken Follett novel comes to video.
Rufus Sewell ("Eleventh Hour") plays the saga's hero, the would-be builder of a cathedral that literally could shine light on the scheming of a bishop ( Ian McShane) and King Henry's children ( Alison Pill, Tony Curran). They plot to prevent the construction. Donald Sutherland, Matthew Macfadyen and Eddie Redmayne also star. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries. *** (Not rated: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
