Osmund has his own reasons for going with them. He plans to slip away and run off with his girlfriend Averill. But plans go awry the further they venture into Dentwich Forest and the Great Marsh. They encounter flagellants, witch burners and then they reach the pretty plague free village and things get really ugly. This is grim and dark and good. Plus it had a cameo by David Warner.
“The Bishop seeks to roast himself a necromancer.”
“Where does the church believe this pestilence has come from?”
“No corpse filled pits. No burning bodies.”
“Die well my friend.”
“I do not fear you, or your pagan lapdog.”
“How may of you are left?”
Orson Welles and John Hurt shows up. Big events take place off screen, Norfolk lurks and More is arrogant and likes to pontificate. His daughter Margaret shows up to make speeches. More ends up in the Tower and on trial and is still irritating and pontificating right until the end. This was okay but bitty.
“I have no Queen!”
“You threaten like a dockside bully.”
