I think finding a balance between actual history and fiction can be tricky to pull off but I this miniseries did it justice. All I know of The Anarchy is what I have seen in this production and I found it thoroughly engrossing. I am not sure either why the felt the need to change Matilda to Maude and I am sure also that some specialist in this field will probably have a few things to say about certain accuracies (or inaccuracies so to speak) of the historical part, however, it is just a story and an entertaining one at that even though it is set in such brutal times. Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Natalia W├Ârner, Tony Curran and Eddie Redmayne gave some brilliant performances but in fact the whole cast was a great ensemble.
