After the downfall of Cardinal Wolsey, his secretary, Thomas Cromwell, finds himself amongst the treachery and intrigue of King Henry VIII's court and soon becomes a close advisor to the King, a role fraught with danger.
"The making of..." is an excellent companion piece (Availiable on the DVD release). While watching the original mini-series, I found myself becoming anxious at the thought of the series ending. Thnakfully, towards the end of the original HBO airing, "The Making of..." was announced. I was fascinated at the special effects, particularly for the episodes dealing with the "Battle of the Bulge" and how much was spent on things like uniforms (Period specific). What most amazed me, was to find that some of the principal stars were English or Austrailian! Wow, was just not a sufficient reaction. If you liked the series, be sure to see "The Making of..."
