Storyline

Whitehall Palace, London 1540. Thirty years into the reign of King Henry VIII and it's been a long, hot summer: London is experiencing intense heat and there has been no rain for two months. But while his subjects wilt, the King's vigor remains undiminished. The Reformation goes on and Henry has just married the beautiful Catherine Howard, his fifth Queen, who is a mere seventeen years old. Catherine is different from earlier wives in more ways than age: far from being nobility she was 'discovered' by some of the King's friends in a boarding house for wayward young ladies. Joan Bulmer the new Queen's best friend from her youth, is hired as a lady in waiting; aside from her friendship she knows too much scandalous detail about Catherine's sexual past to be outside the court. The Queen's 'low' background combined with her youth and beauty, arouses a lusty familiarity in certain members of Henry's court. Most notably the King's handsome and ambitious new groom Thomas Culpepper, who makes... Written by JPeter1017

Trivia

Catherine Howard's name is alternately spelled as both Katherine and Katheryne. her birthdate has been alternately cited as both 1521 or 1525, which means she was either fifteen or nineteen, not seventeen, when she married Henry. See more »

Goofs

Around 38 minutes in, Catherine looks out of a diamond leaded window at Culpepper. We see her as the camera looks into the room, but looking outwards the shape of the lead framing is different. It is not just a question of focus as the soldering is different on the joints. Also, at the end, both Henry and Culpepper look at Catherine in the rain and the device is not used. See more »

Please kill her already!
12 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've gotten used to a dark-haired, rock star Henry VIII. I've even dealt with all the soft core porn. When the series refocused on other things than sex, it was actually interesting. The sets, costumes and most of the actors are wonderful. Just tell yourself that this is a fictional drama.

However, we come to the episodes dealing with Kahterine Howard. Even ignoring history, this depiction of Katherine Howard had me screaming...."kill her already!" at the TV. Here Katherine behaves worse than a $10 prostitute from the first time Henry sees her alone. She giggles constantly like a 13 year old today. She is wanton in front of the entire court and visitors. She is unkempt, even when she becomes queen. She looks at all men as though they're red meat and she's a tiger that hasn't eaten in weeks. And I haven't even gotten to the episode where she meets Culpepper! Henry was still a king in need of another son. Historically, he was incapable of having sex with Katherine because of his painful leg and obesity. Here his leg has obviously healed enough for him to jump her constantly before (unbelievably) marrying her.

I can ignore all that stuff.....but I can't get beyond the most annoying depiction of a female in this series. so.....Kill her already!
