* Clive Owen's monologue on crossing the North Atlantic (taking words from Francis Drake). The music and the "ascending to heaven" metaphor make it very beautiful indeed.

-->'''Sir Walter Raleigh:''' Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean? For weeks, you see nothing but the horizon - perfect and empty. You live in the grip of fear: fear of storms; fear of sickness on board; fear of the immensity. So you must drive that fear down, deep into your belly; study your charts; watch your compass; pray for a fair wind; and hope. Pure, naked, fragile: hope. ... At first it's no more than a haze on the horizon. So you watch. You watch. Then it's a smudge; a shadow on the far water, for a day ... for another day. The stain slowly spreads along the horizon, taking form ... until, on the third day, you let yourself ''believe''. You dare to whisper the word: ''land''. Land. Life. Resurrection. Coming out of the vast unknown, out of the immensity ... into new life. ''That'', your Majesty, is the New World.

* The ending is something of an homage to ''TheGodfather''; as Elizabeth I remakes herself into a secular deity to lead England, she's commanded "let it all be done", causing her master of spies, Walsingham, to orchestrate a stunning series of assassinations, brutally executing her enemies and consolidating her power.
