Rufus Sewell

Rufus Sewell (Starz Media)

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)
