Anyone Else Excited About "Wolf Hall" Premiering On PBS Tonight?

I am, because the reviews for this BBC drama series — which combines Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and the sequel, Bring Up The Bodies, into one six-episode screenplay — have been remarkably good, pretty much across-the-board, and lavish with praise for all kinds of reasons. Here's just one example of what all the fuss is about.

Details: With Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell, Damian Lewis as King Henry VIII, Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn; Joanne Whalley as Katherine of Aragon and Jonathan Pryce as Cardinal Wolsey — among a cast that has been described as magnificent — it starts airing at 10:00 p.m. Eastern/9:00 p.m. Central tonight on Masterpiece Theatre.


ETA: A kind friend advised me that the current issue of The Paris Review features an extensive interview with Hilary Mantel, which includes talk about her work on the final installment of the Wolf Hall trilogy. It's not available on-line — yet — but PR does tend to make interviews accessible after a certain point in time. They also are in the habit of tweeting their interviews, both fairly current and much, much older, sometimes going back decades.
