What are you watching on TV now? in Ramble On Posted January 25, 2013 Not strictly on TV, but I finally got around to watching 'The Hollow Crown' on DVD last night which was first broadcast by the BBC in the summer. I watched the first episode, Richard II with Ben Whishaw. His performance, the whole production left me speechless. Even if you don't like Shakespeare I would urge you to watch this. It's so captivating you can't take your eyes away from the screen.
