In the decades to come, Philip and the earl's children, Aliena (Hayley Atwell) and Richard (Sam Claflin), battle the bishop and the Hamleighs to complete Kingsbridge Cathedral and restore their family name. Jack's mother, Ellen (Natalia Wörner), aids in their efforts, while Jack and Alfred (Jared Leto look-alike Liam Garrigan), Tom's ne'er-do-well son, compete for Aliena's affections. As fortunes rise and fall, there's rape, incest, and executions, resulting in nudity, profanity, and splashes of blood. There are also over-the-top sequences, like a strange smothering, but the multi-character story line is involving, and the principal cast, particularly Sewell, is up to the task. The eight-part series includes extra features that explore the digital effects, the animated opening titles, and the production with Follett, executive producer Ridley Scott, actor/writer John Pielmeier, and director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
Excellent quality, good story line and acting, well cast, good character development.
This historical novel is the most accurate depiction of life in England in the 12th century that I have ever seen, read about, or imagined.
It's not flawless, but it's still excellent, and seeing author Ken Follett in a scene was great!
It is necessary to read the book too, or listen o it, so much more etail in reading or listening, though it is fun to have a face to the charactersPublished 2 days ago by Claudia

The novel was apparently to much for an 8 hour miniseries. It probably could have been stretched into several full seasons on a better network. Read morePublished 26 days ago by S. Needham

|Additional languages & subtitles?||
Was wondering the same I need Spanish subtitles so that my family can watch it. I still do not get why studios are lazy and cheap that they do not have more languages, specially now with Blu-ray, they should just release Americas discs with English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

|Problems with Pillars jerky frame movements||
Had the same problem on different copies of the bluray--one from netflix, and one purchased from a store. Same problem on two different models of bluray player. It looks as if frames have been removed, causing a jerky, speeded up look (like TVland used to do to add extra commercial time to old... Read More

|Is there a series 2 at all?||
Nope, a second series was never made, because the last episode tied up all the loose ends. It'd be nice if they'd make a miniseries of World Without End, though.
