    Names From World Without End

    Hello Berries, have any of you watched the TV series "World Without End" based on on a novel by Ken Follett? I love British history so it's a favourite show of mine. The story is set in the 1300's around the period of the Hundred Years War and Black Plague the time in the 1300's when the story is based. It has everything a good historical drama from that era should contain: power struggles, military battles, sibling rivalry, costumes, peasants, royalty, marriage, murder, knights, death, religion, greed, revenge etc...I thought I would list all of the main cast and the characters they portray. I have bolded my faves below. Are there any names I've missed? Are there any names you like?

    Cynthia Nixon as Petranilla
    Miranda Richardson as Mother Cecilia

    Yes, I liked it!

    My favourite names would be:
    Roland
    Caris
    Godwyn
    Gwenda
    Ralph
    Margery
    Edmund
    Isabella
    Wulfric

    There's also a Rose and an Alan in there, but they weren't major characters. I like the names though.

    I also loved The Pillars of the Earth, have you seen that one? It had a Remigius in it!
