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.
What a colossal waste of a really good novel. Ken Follett's followup novel to "The Pillars of the Earth" was 18 years in coming, and was as good as the first. I had hoped that someone would produce a series on this novel, but now I wish it had not happened. Although this production wasted no money on sets, costumes, or actors, they should have stuck to the original storyline and spent more effort on writing. I sat through the first episode, and started the second one before deleting the recording and canceling the series recording. The storyline of this series was utter rubbish and made no logical, coherent sense. What a shame.
