Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavill, and special guest Joely Richardson star in the thrilling final season of “The Tudors”, the epic drama about the life, loves, and lusts of England’s most notorious King. King Henry VIII marries his fifth wife, seventeen-year-old Catherine Howard, a mischievous beauty who ignites the passion of both the King and his chamber groom, setting up a deadly love triangle. Spun into a midlife crisis, Henry remarries and embarks on a war with France to capture Boulogne and symbolically recapture his youth. At home, the battle between Catholics and Protestants escalates when Henry’s beloved sixth wife is charged with heresy. Now Henry, in his growing madness, must determine her fate while securing the legacy of his magnificent reign.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling viewing 6 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
Well, for one thing, the production values are sky high. The costumes, locations and acting are all first rate. It is true that Jonathan Rhys Meyers looks nothing like Henry VIII but he certainly captures the essence of the man: big personality, dangerous to cross but on occassion compassionate (and passionate!), powerful yet in later life prone to mood swings and relatively frail. The writers have taken liberties with some of the events and characters, however, this is entertainment, not a documentary. If you accept the artistic licence for what it is then this series is compelling. It captures the main events of King Henry VIII's reign rather well. The political tensions and brutal reality of life in royal circles in the sixteenth century are never very far away. To my mind the fourth and final series is the best. Savour and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tudors series 4 20 Mar 2011
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having pre ordered Series four of The Tudors and had to wait a long time for the official release date, it actually came two working days before that official release date. I already had series one, two and three on DVD and the pre order price was very good. I had already seen episodes 1-7 as they had been transmitted on the BBC.
Within twenty four hours of receiving the item I have now seen the remaining episodes 8,9,10 on this DVD set, plus the special features.
Series Four is fantastic. It is worth the long wait. It is just as good as any of the previous three series.
The production is lavish, glamorous, well directed and acted. The sets and the atmosphere of the whole series are excellent.
Once again the producers have created an outstanding series of drama. There is just as much power in this final series as there was in the first three. And it gradually builds into a grand finale.
I am not going to give away any of the plot twists or describe any of the scenes or highlights. It would only spoil it for anyone that hasn't seen it yet. But I can say if you enjoyed the other series then you will not be disappointed in this one.
The series goes out in style and to be honest I was sad that it ended. I still wanted more.
It may not be historically accurate but it does not matter. History is subjective anyway. And this was meant to be entertainment and it most certainly is just that. The last episode in particular takes a lot of liberties in order to be entertaining rather than factual.
Every episode from episode one of series one, to the final episode of this series four has been a fabulous production and it should be one of the best remembered TV programmes of our times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell To The King 26 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
This was really well worth the wait (UK viewers had to wait almost a year after this had been screened in the US to see it).

The Tudors has been one of those rare shows that improved year on year and I'm sorry that it has come to an end. Even though you knew what was going to happen, it was so well dramatised that I was kept glued to the screen.

I thought Series 3 was fantastic and would be very hard to improve on but Series 4 really delivers the goods and wraps things up nicely.

The last episode was quite different to what had gone before and although it goes a bit 'Ashes To Ashes' it was still very enjoyable and doesn't detract from what has gone before. Having read the series episode synopsis before even seeing it I was a bit dubious about the "dream sequence" but it was brilliantly done and nice to see the ladies again.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been a compelling Henry VIII and he remains so until the end. I thought his deterioration in the last two episodes was very well done.

The cast has been consistently excellent throughout but Henry Cavill deserves a special mention. (I did think that Sarah Bolger was too nice to be Mary, even when she stated her intentions about what would happen should she ever become Queen).

My only disappontment was that Joss Stone was only in two episodes. She was a revelation and I loved her portrayal of Anne of Cleves.

Also, it was a shame that Eoin Murtagh didn't play Prince Edward in the last episode, for continuity if nothing else.

I can't end this review without mentioning the music, composed by Trevor Morris. It really made my enjoyment all the more complete. The shorter theme used in opening credits of series 3 & 4 is probably my favourite from any television show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Finale!!! 7 May 2011
Format:DVD
I must say that i have loved the hole Tudors saga. With a mixture or history and artistic license, I would say that the Tudors has something for everyone. The key to all of the seasons was the vast array of acting talent on hand, especially in those regular supporting roles which really added to the depth and drama of the Tudor Court.

In terms of this purchase, one is buying into a fantasic final season and a must have to any collection.

Season 4 exellently portrays the decline of one of England's most polemic Rulers. It does lack alittle something from the previous seasons, but perhaps the nature of story meant it could only end that way.

I Loved watching this Drama and look forward to enjoying it again and again.
