Watch the BBC series that inspired a Netflix phenomenon. Hailed as one of the best British television shows of all time, the award-winning political drama House of Cards is a delicious tale of greed, corruption and burning ambition. At its heart is Francis Urquhart (played by leading Shakespearean actor Ian Richardson), a ruthless villain with a smiling face who sets out to destroy all of his political rivals. One by one his opponents fall, until at last there is just one wild card left in the pack.
