A Pilgrimage of Grace - job opportunities for elderly actors.
28 August 2009 | by (Ecosse) – See all my reviews

This episode deals with the aftermath of the Pilgrimage of Grace where Henry -still resolutely and inaccurately slimline- take a vicious and bloody revenge on the faithful led by Robert Aske.

This episode is set in 1536 when Robert Aske was 36 years old . He is played (superbly) by 59 year old Gerald McSorley.

Cardinal von Waldburg makes an appearance. He was 22 years old in 1536 and was promoted to Cardinal 8 years later. However he is played by the 80 year old Max von Sydow - a 58 year gap.

"The Tudors" contempt for any grasp on historical reality continues apace.
