If you haven't seen it, though it's a movie rather than a series, Richard Harris in Cromwell is tremendous viewing. Again, it's old, maybe 1960s/70s.
Never heard of By the Sword Divided, will check out.

Harris is a powerful Cromwell but Alec Guinness as Charles is something truly special

One of the things I was bored with in this film is how traditional the narrative is. King vs Parliament, Charles vs Cromwell, royalists and roundheads, Arminians vs the godly puritans etc. There was a lot more going on there, between the radical wing in Cromwell's army (who had to be violently put down and were seen by some as a threat even bigger than Catholics) and various radical sects preaching anarchy, who were emboldened by the chaos of war and the decline in the power and authority of the Church of England, and were seen as a threat to the already ravaged social fabric. And because the film touches on none of that, it ends up presenting Cromwell as far more radical and champion of the people than we know him to be (see the Putney Debates for example).

A film I find more compelling is Winstanley, about the Digger leader. Amazing monochrome cinematography as well.

Yeah I love Bill Nighy. He's always fantastic

Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!

I've met Bill actually. My daughter and me walked up on him setting up for a presentation at the Museum of S&I in Chicago in the 90's. He's a riot.

Anyway gonna rewatch Cracker after I'm done with La Promesse. During the lockdowns we did TV time together so I had to watch lots of reality shows and anime but I can't do it any longer. Need to get back on my proper bs like watching Robbie Coltrane scream at a suspect about the death drive.
