I learnt a lot from this...
9 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think it is perfect, but it is very good. David Starkey is very informative, in providing the insight into the life of Henry VIII. Some of the stuff, I admit I already knew from school, but there was added information that I never knew before, so I found it interesting. I thought there were some lovely locations and costumes, however, I wasn't entirely impressed with some of the actors. The actress of Anne Boleyn wasn't sincere enough, and it seemed as though they had two actors for Thomas Cromwell. I liked the actress of Katherine of Aragon, and although I have seen superior portrayals, the actor of Henry VIII himself did more than adequately. One definite thing I liked was the music, very haunting and beautiful over some scenes, particularly in the scene with Jane Seymour's body being carried on the boat. Overall, I liked the series a lot, so I will give it a 8/10 Bethany Cox.
