Richard III: Ricardian Philippa Langley hits out at design for king’s tomb by Peter Warzynski –

With so far 89% opposition (in a Leicester Mercury, not York based poll) against the revealed tomb design of Leicester Cathedral, Philippa Langley hardly is alone with her reservations against the minimalistic design of a deeply carved cross into a block of fossile stone.
Is King Richard III meant to be the dinosaur of English history? Unexplained and misunderstood, though many try?

    • CNN: Richard III: The mystery of the king and the car parking lot, by Bryony Jones (01.02.2013)
      A detailed and detail rich article about the search for King Richard III with new quotes from the research team and screenwriter Philippa Langley, who also talks about Richard Armitage as King Richard III:

      She has even been in talks with Leicestershire lad turned Hollywood hero Richard Armitage — last seen as Thorin Oakenshield in “The Hobbit” — to play the king.

      “He was born to play the role,” she explains. “He’s an amazing doppelganger for Richard III, he was born a couple of miles from Bosworth on the anniversary of Richard’s death, and he was even named after him.”

    News – New Film About the Search for King Richard III

    British actor, comedian, writer and producer Steve Coogan just confirmed to the BBC (04.09.2020), that a film about the ‘Search for King Richard III’ will start filming in the year 2021.

    Mr. Coogan also revealed, that he will be playing Philippa Langley‘s husband in the planned film.

    Ms. Philippa Langley’s role for the discovery of King Richard III in the former church ground in Leicester together with the research done by Dr. John Ashdown Hill (†) was essential for the discovery, which for so long had been deemed impossible. Their persistence and research had made this ground-breaking discovery possible.

    And so I am very happy that a film is now planned to show their long and exhausting efforts and hard way to this phenomenal success.

    Congratulations, Philippa Langley !
