Storyline

As Henry's health deteriorates, he grows depressed and introspective as the ghosts of the past come to haunt him, and various factions in the court try to position themselves favorably for the succession after his death. Bishop Gardiner continues to pursue Anne Stanhope and the Queen for heresy but is thwarted by some unforeseen circumstances. Sensitive to his legacy, the King commissions a portrait from Holbein as Charles Brandon's health decline too. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Quotes

King Henry VIII: [Voiceover prologue] When we compare the present life of man on Earth with that time of which we have no knowledge, it seems to me like a swift flight of a single sparrow through a banquet hall on a winter's day. After a few moments of comfort, he vanishes from sight into the wintry world from which he came. Even so, man appears on Earth for a little while, but of what went before this life or what will follow, we know nothing.

A masterpiece ending
10 September 2011 | by (Tarsonis) – See all my reviews

Were you to go to the movie theatre and walk out an hour later after watching this final episode, you would not feel cheated out of your money. In the final hours of King Henry's life, Myers' culmination of his role rivals any actor out there who has ever played a character going from youth to old age. There are scenes where you won't even believe it's him. Cameos, lines and scenes have a perfect flow, and you can only feel sadness for the ending of a great TV show, as well as for every character on screen, whether from past seasons or current. A truly perfect ending for a captivating series, spectacular in its simplicity.
