Description

    Man preys upon his fellow man

    An intimate portrait of Thomas Cromwell, the brilliant consigliore to King Henry VIII, based on Hilary Mantel's bestselling novels and starring Mark Rylance and Damian Lewis. It is 1529 and Henry has been married to Katherine of Aragon for 20 years without producing a male heir. Requests to the Pope for an annulment have gone unheeded. The King's link to Rome, Cardinal Wolsey, has failed his sovereign in only this one matter and as a result his life hangs in the balance. Enter Cromwell ‐ a pragmatic and accomplished negotiator, from humble beginnings and with an enigmatic past. As he walks the corridors of power at the Tudor court, Cromwell must navigate deadly political intrigue, the King's tempestuous relationship with Anne Boleyn and the religious upheavals of the Protestant reformation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deadly Politics under Henry VIII England in the 1520's and 30's, Henry VIII, want's rid of his wife Katherine of Aragon because she can't produce a son. Cardinal Worsley has failed to obtain and annulment from the pope, so Anne Boylen and her supporters destroy him. Thomas Cromwell, Worsley's servant vows revenge. Go against the King and it could cost you your head, and that was a kinder punishment than others like burning or drawing and quartering. Cromwell plays the long game, rising in Henry's service and trust and then when Henry want' rid of Anne, the trap is sprung. Mark Rylance as Cromwell and Damian Lewis play superbly understated roles making this a compelling drama

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical entrigue I bought Wolf Hall 6 weeks ago, it sat on my shelf until a rainy day came. What a mistake! It is such a gripping series based on Hilary Mantel's wonderful books. Exciting, intriguing, enlightening - you can't stop at one episode. I am eagerly awaiting season 2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wolf Hall Costumes were lavish and well done. Well acted and engaging although pacing was a little slow at times. When the name Cromwell is mentioned most people think of Oliver but Thomas, although not related to Oliver, had a dramatic impact on England and Henry the Eighth and his affairs. Maybe not 100% historically correct still an engaging insight into the times, power, corruption, schemes and brutality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Adaptation Brilliant adaptation of Hilary Mantel's award winning novels 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies'. Didn't think it would have been possible .... but this is the BBC. Superbly cast and produced, great features and one to treasure and go back to view again over the years. Loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wolf Hall Nowhere near as good as The Tudors, but it is interesting to see an extra side to the story behind Jane Seymour, and Thomas Cromwell. The other good thing is it's not so old it's not in wide screen - no need to adjust your aspect ratio.
