Versailles, which aired last night on BBC2, was jam packed with intrigue, there were nobles of the court with their hugelace collars, trying their very best to avoid paying tax while working to convince the king that the best course of actionwas to catch the next coach back to Paris. There was a French version of Thomas Walsingham, opening everyone’s letters and brandishing assorted lethal weapons that he was not a bit scared to use, and then there was the obligatory sex scene two minutes into the watershed (not thirty two as I mentioned to someone yesterday.)
