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.
I recorded all 3 episode of this series then ended up watching them back to back as it turned out to be so gripping! The casting and performances of the main characters was excellent, although I do think that that Peter should have been played by someone slightly more attractive. The actor who played Gavin was perfect for the part, as you have to be very good looking and sexy to get away with the darker aspects to that character. I can't really say much more without giving away the plot, other than to say do give this a go. Gripping, sexy, well made, well acted, good story. What more could you ask? By the way I did see the original series and read the book as a teenager, and really enjoyed the story back then but can't remember enough about it to really compare the two TV versions.
