This is probably one of the best televsion productions to look at Henry VIII despite the numerous historical inaccuracies.

The most annoying inaccuracy is the merging of Margaret Tudor and Mary Tudor in one character but otherwise the attention to detail is awesome. Hirst successfully higlights the minutiae of Tudor life interspersed with the splendor of the court.

Hirst's characterisation and casting were his trump cards as the acting is first rate. Jonathan Rhys Meyer doesn't rival Henry VIII in stature or looks yet manages to convey the most convincing portrayal of the monarch ever seen. The cast is very strong: Wolsey (Sam Neill), More (Jeremy Northam), Cromwell (James Frain), Katherine of Aragon (Maria Donnelly) and Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer) are all played superbly! Hirst triumphs in his characterisation of these key figures: they are not portrayed according to stereotpe or in a one dimensional manner. The portrayal of Cromwell, in particular, is a welcome one.

Even if you are not interested in British History or the Tudor period, give it a go anyway. It's a great bodice ripping romp with the added bonus of being well written, brilliantly acted, well shot with amazing attention to detail. This series is so gripping that, should you buy the series, you will wearout your DVD through overuse!

I hadn't watched the series when originally aired, but bought the series on recommendation from friends.

Well long story short my girlfriend and I put the first disc in, and watched all four episodes, and we're quite quickly consuming the rest of it :)

Well cast through out, and with strong primary and sub plots. The quality of the picture is outstanding on Blu-ray and is a clear step-up from conventional DVDs...
...unfortunately that just points out some of the cheapness of some of the CGI buildings, as well as some other lacklustre props. Luckily though, I'm not quite shallow enough for that to both me!

A note for the easily offended: there is fair amount of swearing, a healthy portion of nudity, and frequant bouts of high definition nooky ;)

All in all a good one for grown-ups but don't give it to the kids as an aide to their school homework!

Yes, its true, there are numerous historical innacuracies, but truly, do these really matter and affect the viewing pleasure? No! Not for a second. This is entertainment, pure and simple. Yes, a lot of it is fiction but its still fantastic viewing - the sets, the costumes, the casting - which are all fantastic. I read many reviews on this DVD and some nearly persuaded me not to buy it as I hadn't seen any of the BBC2 episodes. Now, I can't wait for the next series - its addictive. Poppycock to all those purists who just can't see good dramatic TV fiction for what it is. I say, sit back and enjoy!

As a history student people assume I will be constantly annoyed by the historical inaccuracies that feature relatively frequently throughout this series but I honestly couldn't care less! The casting has been well done (I doubted Jonathon Rhys-Meyers at first but he becomes an excellent Henry VIII in my opinion) and the seductive and dramatic plot had me hooked from the first episode.
Can't wait for Season 2!

I won't go into specific plotlines since that could take all day. However, if you realize while watching it that they have taken a bit creative license with some of the facts, then you will enjoy it much better. The acting is SUPERB. I really wasn't sure about the casting of Rhys Meyers, a very average Irish actor I have only seen in "Bend it Like Beckham". But he quickly won me over. He truly commands the screen, is petulant when it calls for it and really makes you beleive he is Henry. The actress who plays Queen Katherine is also brilliant. The sets and costumes are lush and beautiful. You almost feel like you were transported back 500 years ago! The storyline moves along very quickly and at the end of the season, really left me wanting more - I was completely hooked and cannot wait till 08 to see season 2. There are however, factual errors in the script that I won't detail here - if you didn't notice them while watching, then I won't disappoint you by pointing them out now. If you enjoy period movies and television, then you will ADORE the Tudors.

Despite historical inaccuracies, this a great tv series, with this being the first season out of four.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII may raise a few eyebrows, everyone knows the Holbein portrait of the king, presenting the tall, fat and unattractive man. Everything that Meyers is not, basically. However, Henry VIII was young once, and according to historians he was quite athletic, charismatic, and dare I say it, attractive back in his youth. While he Meyers may not physically look like the king, his acting is outstanding, and on my opinion, he gets the portrayal of the temperate king spot on.

Series one starts with Henry VIII tired of his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, after the marriage has failed to produce any male heirs, and only resulting in a single daughter, Mary. As we all know, Anne Boleyn comes along and steals the kings desire- and heart. Hell bent on divorcing Katherine and marrying Anne, the king grants Wolsey with the unenviable task of persuading the pope to annul the marriage, on the basis of Catherine having been previously married to his elder brother Arthur. The 'Kings great matter' as it has been called, went on for over five years so it is no surprise that this spans many episodes, which eventually (as we know from history) results in the break from Rome and the establishment of the Church of England.

Along the way, the series focuses on the fall of Wolsey, the rise of the Boleyns, and the ins and outs of court life. While their are inaccuracies, for example the decision to merge Henry VIII's sister's Mary and Margaret into one, and changing the death of Wolsey, this is still a very entertaining series. It is definitely not suitable for children though, with a lot of sex scenes (this does calm down in later series), and some scenes of violence. If you love historical dramas and won't mind too much about the poetic license when it comes to history, this is recommended.
