Product Description

Product Description

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

From Amazon.co.uk

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. It’s 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, it’s all vividly and skillfully knitted together.

But The Tudors isn’t just about its central character, for there’s a terrific supporting cast at work here too. Sam Neill’s Cardinal Wolsey, Jeremy Northam’s Thomas More and Natalie Dormer’s Ann Boleyn are just some who earn plaudits here. Behind the camera there’s 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. It’s also been knocked for the liberties it takes with history when putting its story across--with some justification. But it’s 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 you’ve re-watched season one a few times, though… --Jon Foster

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!
