Channel 4’s recent drama based on the events of the English Civil War has just been released on DVD.

The Devil’s Whore focuses on the life of the fictional character Angelica Fanshawe, who brings together many of the key figures of the 1640s.

This sweeping drama is beautifully filmed and wonderfully acted.

The four part drama looks at all aspects of the revolution against King Charles I, including the radical Levellers, represented by Edward Sexby, Thomas Rainsborough and John Lilburne.
