Helen Mirren as Elizabeth I

So, after hearing about this from at Morning Meeting on Sunday, I dug around until I found the details:

Helen Mirren is starring as Elizabeth I in a new 2-part miniseries on Channel 4 in the UK. The miniseries, which will air this Thursday and next, will also feature Jeremy Irons as Dudley and Ian “Emperor Palpatine” McDiarmid as William Cecil, Lord Burghley.

Bittorrent willing, I will be getting a copy of this, and I think a viewing party should be in the offing.
