‘So now get up’.
Last night, the television adaptation Wolf Hall became BBC2’s biggest drama series for a decade, drawing in 3.9 million views. The first episode of the six part series served as the perfect coming-to-life of a novel that is at the very heart of our imprint. We at 4th Estate watched both our screens, and our Twitter feed (#WolfHall was trending, of course), drawing delight from both.

It’s a lonely feeling being the only actor in Equity not to have a part in Wolf Hall.
