"Es Devlin's set design in which England is basically conceived as an often blood-stained, earthy battleground, with a steep hill at the rear, conveys Attenborough's sense that the play intensifies the impression conveyed in Richard II of a country rent asunder." Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard 20.4.00
