Plant identification?

I saw these in my parents' garden at the weekend, I wonder whether anyone here can help with identifying them?  I have a vague idea, but would prefer to hear from people who know what they're talking about!

    That is acanthus, and a very beautiful it is too.

    Thank you - my first thought was that it might Aconitum, thanks for putting my mind at rest!

    Acanthus spinosus.

    Don't worry about aconitum anyway , it's not going to kill you. despite what the Daily ( Hate ) Mail says.
