Wolf Hall is back – but knit as you know it…

Welsh grandmother Denise Salway has kept the memory of the historical drama series alive in wool

If you’re missing Wolf Hall, your favourite characters can live on – in wool.


Welsh grandmother Denise Salway is such a fan that she has created knitted dolls of Mark Rylance’s Thomas Cromwell and Damian Lewis’ Henry VIII.

But Salway (AKA the Knitting Witch) insists they are not for sale – if you want your own you’ll have to get the needles out….

As to whether there will be a second series, executive producer Colin Callender has told RadioTimes.com that the production team and actors Rylance and Lewis are “eager” to film the last book in the trilogy, The Mirror and the Light.

Author Hilary Mantel is currently writing the book which will take us up to Thomas Cromwell’s demise at the hands of Henry.

“We are waiting for Hilary to deliver it, but everybody involved felt they were making something of substance,” Callender said. “Subject to everybody’s schedule I think they will want to come back.”

“Claire Foy won’t be able to,” adds Callender. Foy, of course, played the ill-fated Anne Boleyn
