This review is from: The Tudors - Season 3 [DVD]  (DVD)
The Tudors is fantastic TV but absurd History. Nobody ages for a start. The historical inaccuracies are legion. Why give the leader of the pilgrimage of Grace Robert Aske a family when he didn't have one, or make him middle aged when he was in his twenties. And surely no King would be repulsed by this Anne of Cleves played by Joss Stone. The episodes kept me constantly going back to the internet to check facts but perhaps in the end that is not what matters.
The series is beautifully shot, the drama is gripping and the performances compelling. It simply works as TV and for the moment you suspend disbelief and just enjoy the intensity of it. Despite the deviations from the facts it is hard not to be seduced.
