Great For Those Interested In The Writer and His Stories
3 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this entire mini-series, documentary good for those already familiar with Shakespeare. However, if someone was to watch this series without some fluency with the writings of William Shakespeare, it might not be very intriguing. It does not express the full plays, but gets more into the writer, and historical influences that went into his productions. All of the commentators/narrators did a very fine job, but none as well as Jeremy Irons. But then, I am prejudiced to find him to be a magnificent actor and documentary narrator due to his other great performances/narrations. Shakespeare's writings have influenced much of todays stories, and this is clearly shown through this series.
