It might be all this Elizabethan influence over the last weekend but my Mum and I decided to buy (well I wanted to and she bought) the Tudors Series 1. I have seen this programme in passing but had never got into it properly.
But I can safely say I am now addicted!!
'The Tudors is a historical fiction TV series created and entirely written by British screenwriter Micheal Hirst. The series is loosely based upon the early reign of English monarch Henry VIII.'
Henry VIII is the English King who had 6 wives- which he mostly had beheaded!! And so it weaves an interesting story! He is also the reason there was a large divide between the Catholic Church and Protestants in the UK.
His daughter was Elizabeth the I so as we are only on his second wive in the second series and they've commissioned a third for 2009.. The Tudors could go on forever!!
