Wolf Hall - BB2

I was tipped off about this over at Interconnected

To say it's off-the-charts in terms of pretty much every dimension worth mentioning doesn't do it justice. 

It's the best TV production I can think of right now.

Most entertainment appalls me, but when it's good, it's like a long cool draught of ale on a hot thirsty summers day.

What is it that elevates the sublime to an exalted position? 

I guess a combination of things because there's lots to proselytize about this. I'm reminded of the TV series I Claudius, which although much more primitive in terms of production is still infused with something magical that takes it beyond the ordinary.
