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

The acting is generally superb, and Rhys Meyers' Henry is nicely complex: charming, capricious, powerful and frightening. Sam Neill, too, deserves plaudits for bringing Wolsey to life. The sets are fantastic, and the accounts of the revels, the music, the costumes give the whole thing an air of authenticity.
I don't personally agree with the hostile depiction of Anne Boleyn here, but have to admit it makes for great TV.
I like that this takes the time to explore the polical and religious machinations of the period: by the end of this series we've seen Wolsey fall, but the King still doesn't have his divorce...
and very well done.. i have the whole series on blu ray so that is just great!!
