I think a lot of people are missing the point when it comes to Micheal Hirst's take on Tudor England. Eyes have been rolling (as opposed to heads...), and it seems like everyone's set to condemn it purely because Jonathan Rhys Meyers didn't fatten up for the role, nor don a ginger beard and codpiece. Woe!

So there are some historical inaccuracies, and yes, there's a LOT of nudity - but no one's requesting the immediate burning of all the many biographies and history books concering the period, and asking the shelves to be replaced with DVDs of the sexed up version. This is a television programme! And I'm certain that this series has forced a fair few to get down to their library and look up what the tudors were really like.

Isn't anyone fed up of the cliche'd fat man with a fake orange beard, take on Henry VIII? This is a fresh new take on old school history for a new generation. Stunning sets, beautiful locations, a fairly 'educational' but entertaining script, great costumes and a young cast. Let's start seeing the tudors for what it is - enjoyable programming :)

As a history student in her final year at university, I can well understand why those who have a passion for history, and its accurate portrayal, may have problems with the liberties taken here. However, it's important to remember that Henry VIII was not always fat and old, especially during this period! In fact, in some of the very final scenes of the series, we can see how he will probably progress into being this more typical version, and I for one cannot wait to see if they can pull this transition off. The important thing to remember is that this is a tv show; not even a documentary, and therefore has not got an obligation to be 100 per cent factual all of the time, but to be entertaining for the audience. And anything that makes people who normally wouldn't be interested in history want to know more after they've finished viewing, has to have my vote.

I have to admit that I thought that both 'The Tudors' series took some really strong liberties with the truth, i.e. merging Henry VIII's two sisters into one woman. If they make a Queen Mary I and Queen Elizabeth I sequel, I'll be really interested to know how they'll explain away the existence of their cousins Lady Jane Grey and Mary Queen of Scots! The fact that they portrayed Henry VII as a brown-haired, slender, sex-crazed young man also had me in giggles. The costumes weren't the most accurate either.

But that didn't stop me from enjoying the two series, and I think this was better than the first one. It used some interesting reinterpretations of the court and politics of the time(and this comes from a history student) and it offered lots of drama and tension and tragedy as well. The acting seems to have gotten better too (on Jonathan Rhys Meyers' part at least) and I thought Natalie Dormer was outstanding as Anne Boleyn, especially in the last few episodes. I liked how they deliberately faded Natalie Dormer's looks as the series went on to show the stress that Anne was going through. And lastly, the costumes were very beautiful, and I think they conveyed the glamour of the court really well.

All in all: I really enjoyed it! It shows that history can be exciting and dramatic and personal, and I hope it'll encourage people to want to know more about the period.

I just loved series No 2. It seems that with the characters the whole series has matured. And that in a very positive sense. It is still very entertaing and beautiful to look at. The acting is much more ion the forfront (compared to the mere naked pleasures of series no 1). All in all, it seems to be much more acturate and historically valuable (even tough I beliebe that Jane Seymour is a bit too gorgeous) Jonathan Rhys Meyers performance is superb. It was worthwhile seeing this series. Enjoy!!

This second season is certainly more sophisticated than the first, and feels more grownup: the sex has been slashed and the tale of Anne's downfall comes to the fore.

Her fall from grace is superbly executed (if you'll pardon the pun) in the heartbreaking penultimate episode: characters we have grown to know and love are broken before our very eyes. The final, horrific scenes of beheading after beheading of innocent men are awful to behold, and made all the more poignant by Thomas Wyatt's sombre poem being read over it. When poor Mark Smeaton's bruised and broken body is dragged to the block, you almost want to weep at the injustice of it all.

Natalie Dormer gives Jonathan Rhys Myers a run for his money this season in the acting stakes, though it's a shame we see less of the lovely Henry Cavill.

The Tudors is gripping, dark, intriguing stuff and beautiful to look at.

Ignore the snobs who slate this as being 'historically inaccurate' People daft enough to tune into a soap opera - as writer Michael Hirst described it - expecting a history lesson would probably berate EastEnders for not reflecting real London life. It's entertainment folks, and that's all. Ultimately if it gets younger people interested in history that can only be a good thing.
