Passionate. Powerful. Unforgettable. Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Elvis, Mission Impossible III) is King Henry VIII as never seen before: handsome, passionate and “the hottest Henry VIII ever”*. With a lust of power and an appetite for love, the stunning young monarch rules his kingdom as he lives his life – with ruthless abandon. Season 1 of THE TUDORS reveals the untold story of the hot-headed tyrant whose reign was marked by treachery, betrayal and intrigue. This “engaging and thrilling”** drama also stars Sam Neill, Natalie Dormer, Jeremy Northam and Gabrielle Anwar. * TV Guide ** Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
Pulling few punches and garnering its fair share of headlines as a result, The Tudors is a controversial yet compelling period piece that dramatically tells the story of the early years of King Henry VIII. Not for nothing, though, has it attracted its fair share of awards attention.
The Tudors is a complex drama, and not one to simplify its storyline. The young Henry, for instance, is exploring his muddled romances and his insecurities against the challenges his kingdom is facing. Its a plateful for him to deal with, and in the hands of a superb performance from Jonathan Rhys Meyers--a real revelation in the role--as the young Henry, its all vividly and skillfully knitted together.
But The Tudors isnt just about its central character, for theres a terrific supporting cast at work here too. Sam Neills Cardinal Wolsey, Jeremy Northams Thomas More and Natalie Dormers Ann Boleyn are just some who earn plaudits here. Behind the camera theres the pen of Elizabeth writer Michael Hirst at work, and he too deserves much credit, clearly getting his teeth into the fascinating subject matter.
The Tudors is, undoubtedly, a graphic production, and earns its 15 certificate comfortably. Its also been knocked for the liberties it takes with history when putting its story across--with some justification. But its also most certainly terrific television, mixing high production values with strong performances. In short, the ten episodes here will simply have you thirsting for the next series. Not before youve re-watched season one a few times, though --Jon Foster

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!
Can't wait for Season 2!
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!
