88 Shadow of the Tower Icons

So I decided it would be better to make icons for the BBC's old 1972 serial about Henry VII, Shadow of the Tower than to babble about it. And then I had too much fun, as you can see, with eps 1-5 (& hopefully I'll do the rest in a second post).

The usual rules apply: want, take, have, credit. Comments = &hearts & hotlinkers will be sent to the Tower, and nobody wants that. (Some textures by imemime_art, tiger_tyger and silk_roads.)

Excellent! I like the ye olde font you've chosen and there's some nicely composed shots. And you managed to get an icon of David Collings not looking worried! #71 made me laugh (wicked me!).

Thank you!! And, yes, I always forget now that I only bought SotT because it had David Collings in. He's pretty good in it, too, even if he does spend most of his time being sulky or angsty! (David Collings looking pissed off at being brought to justice? Ha.)
