Here’s a lovely picture of Mr. Malahide as Sir Francis Walsingham that I found on HBO’s “Elizabeth I” site. Click for a larger size:
Admin and I reviewed what we considered to be Walsingham’s finest Top Ten Moments in an earlier post. He’s a fascinating character. You can tell just by looking at him that he’s an incredibly ruthless, extremely effective spymaster, although even he can be intimidated by a shoe-throwing Queen. But in his defense, her aim was pretty good. It was a really well done production, and Mr. Malahide’s Walsingham was a vital, indelible presence.
