BBC One produced its House of Cards trilogy – comprised of House of Cards, To Play the King (1993) and The Final Cut (1995) – starring Edinburgh-born actor Ian Richardson as the Machiavellian Westminster politician, Frances Urquhart, with his sights set on greater things.
Fincher’s series has relocated the action to Washington, with Kevin Spacey taking on Richardson’s role, now renamed Francis Underwood.
Is it worth investing in the series? You might well think that, I couldn’t possibly comment…
