Synopsis:
Passion, ambition, and treachery collide in this compelling drama about the early years of King Henry VIII's infamous 40-year reign. With a lust for power and an appetite for love, this young Monarch (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) rules his kingdom as he lives his life - with ruthless abandon. Affairs of the state carry little interest for him, and official matters are left to the powerful Cardinal Thomas Wolsey (Sam Neill), while England's ruler tends to his own desires.

Brilliant Historical Drama about King Henry VIII - The Tudors: Series 1 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
25/04/2021

I missed this when it was shown on TV over a decade ago so am catching up now.

It is a brilliant drama, totally stylised and playing fast and loose with the facts all over the place (eg Henry VIII was red-haired and famous for it; forks were not used to eating at the time; guns were not used either; the Vatican's St Peter's Square and church had not even been built in the 1530s and 2 popes are merged into one character here). But hey, all history is bunk anyway and the impression and the style is what matters. The basic historical facts are right.

The writer who came up with The Tudors went on to create VIKINGS, another utterly brilliant TV drama - and thankfully both were made before the colourblind casting craze came along. I dread to think how this would all look if made now.

Great stuff! 5 stars
