I loved Kenneth Branagh and Brendan Gleeson in HP! I thought Branagh was perfect as Lockhart and Gleeson was one of the few things I liked about GOF.

I watched “Into the Storm” and most of the “Wallander” espisodes. I’ve seen many documentaries and TV adaptions about Churchill’s life. I’ve enjoyed most of them, but I didn’t like “Into the Storm”. Gleeson and the other actors were fine. I just thought they didn’t have much of a story to work with.

I liked “Wallander” very much. Branagh is wonderful. But I thought it was odd that this series about a Swedish detective and set in Sweden seemed to have only British actors. I kept waiting to hear a Swedish accent, but never did.
