House Of Cards

"You might think that, but I couldn't possibly comment!"

"Ian Richardson plays a superb "Daddy" to Susannah Harker's Mattie Storrin!"

House Of Cards by Michael Dobbs with Ian Richardson and Susannah Harker

A double pack featuring BBC TV's political drama. The Chief Whip, Francis Urquhart, takes his revenge on members of the Cabinet. Based on the novel by Michael Dobbs.


The BBC's superlative adaptation of Michael Dobbs' novel of political backstabbing and murderous intent is here available in all its seedy, Machiavellian glory.  Ian Richardson dominates proceedings with his portrayal of chief whip, Francis Urquhart, a scheming wannabe who'll do anything to get to the top and ends up doing just that. This is a story that highlights the slimy, underhanded dealings at Westminster and puts into the shade any revelations that Andrew Rawnsley could possibly offer. Who needs real life when FU is on the prowl? From the direct-to-camera addresses to the chilling and memorable climax atop the roof gardens at the Palace of Westminster, House of Cards delights at every turn. A real classic.
