Yet another Edwardian period drama is on its way to these shores. The BBC/HBO mini-series based on Ford Madox Ford’s series of four novels, Parade’s End will premiere on HBO February 26 to 28. Tom Stoppard wrote the screenplay for the series directed by Susanna White. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall and Adelaide Clemens.
The series aired on BBC Two in 2012. Last year, the New Yorker‘s “Culture Desk” blog predicted the books would make “The Better Downton Abbey.”
