Oh the ignorance! The brutality! The sheer unfairness of everything in provincial England in 1334! World without End keeps hitting us between the eyes with it all – the “wantonness and evil” as a nun complains to Prior Godwyn, though he’s the most evil of the lot, and underneath his saintly talk, wanton too, in a creepy, pervy way.
He actually goes a bit nuts tonight, ranting against women and Jews and taking drastic steps to prevent Mother Cecilia (Miranda Richardson) building her hospice. There are about 47 other plot developments among the huge cast, including rape, poisoning, stabbings and disembowelment.
But it’s all laced with such a sense of grand passion and seriousness that it’s very enjoyable indeed.
With the construction of the new bridge now well in hand under Merthin's supervision, Ralph undertakes a task of his own - to fund the ongoing war with France by any means necessary and at whatever price. Meanwhile, Godwyn is outraged when Mother Cecilia rejects his plans to build a palace on the convent estate and promises Caris a hospital instead. Fighting back, he issues an edict giving the Priory control over all town land.
