This review is from: The Six Wives Of Henry VIII - Complete Series  [DVD] (DVD)
This is a classic from the golden age of tv drama. They simply don't make them like this any more. Having said that, a word of caution: the drama is very much in the talk. There are few outdoor shots, and most of the indoor scenes take place in gloomy panelled rooms. Eye candy it ain't (apart from the magnificent costumes). So you do have to make a bit of an effort to follow what are sometimes quite complex events. But your efforts will be well rewarded, and I found each successive episode more gripping. From the history point of view, some of the treatment is questionable. I thought they were very generous to Anne Boleyn, and a bit hard on Jane Seymour. But six 90-minute dramas for your tenner - it's a bargain.
