The Telegraph’s Best Series of 2022, The English stars BAFTA nominee Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place) as Cornelia Locke, an Englishwoman hell-bent on revenge, whose journey north intertwines with that of Eli Whipp (American Indian Film Festival Award winner Chaske Spencer from The Twilight Saga), a retired Pawnee cavalry scout out to claim the land he is owed for his service in the US army.
The miniseries has an 82% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Empire Magazine calling it, “A massively ambitious and original take on the Western genre, confirming the extraordinary writing and directing skills of TV auteur Hugo Blick while showcasing one of Emily Blunt’s greatest performances yet.”
Also look out for Oscar nominees Stephen Rea (Counterpart) and Ciarán Hinds (Belfast, Mance Rayder in Game of Thrones), Emmy nominee Rafe Spall (Life of Pi, The War of the Worlds), and SAFTA-nominated South African actor and comedian Cokey Falkow (The City and the City, Inside Man), who appears in episode 1.
