Wolf of Wolf Hall a fucking triumph say important people

wolf of wolf fucking hall

The new television adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf of Wolf Hall is nothing short of a fucking triumph according to some very important and clever people indeed.

With performances described as “marvellously humane”,  “smoothly acidic”, and “not shit”, journalists were this morning falling over each other to express their admiration of it’s sheer absolute fucking brilliance.

Sam Wollaston in the Guardian said “It’s just perfect. Flawless. It was so good I didn’t even need to watch it because quite frankly I didn’t feel worthy.”

A similarly complimentary James Walton in his five star telegraph review said “Some programmes are utter rubbish. And some are quite good. But Wolf of Wolf hall was so good that it practically re-invented television. It practically re-invented history. And I think if you actually sat down and watched it then you are missing the irony. If it’s not above irony. Six stars. Seven stars.

“Eight stars”

The Sunday Mirror’s Kevin O’Sullivan told BBC Radio 4’s Today “Wolf of Wolf Hall has won television. People will no longer wish to have their eyes tarnished and polluted by lesser productions. They may well smite their televisions for good and revert to playing charades to pass a winters evening.”

The harshest criticism of the whole night came from Christopher Stevens in the Daily Mail who said “It was almost perfect. If they had made it without any French or Spanish people in it I actually would have done a bit of wee.”
