Series to be made up of Henry VI (in two parts) and Richard III. Benedict Cumberbatch cast as Richard III (presumably in both or all three, depending on how they carve up Henry VI).

I'm guessing it won't be called The Hollow Crown: Series 2.

What do you make of it? Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III? How should one portray Richard III to a modern audience? How will squeezing Henry VI into two parts pan out?

Also: well done to everyone who wished really hard.
