From Blair Woynarski of The Sheaf:
- The Tudors: More blood, sex and religion than you can shake a stick at
“History majors may roll their eyes. The show does not follow fact to the letter: events are telescoped and characters may be altered, omitted or combined. Changes are forgivable, though, because The Tudors never deviates from its central purpose, which is to showcase the drama of the intense personal conflicts that characterized the period. It is not meant to be taken as a road map to the history of 16th century England. It is a drama about the mercurial relationships among the nobility and British Parliament, the vanity of European monarchs and the struggles for personal power that precipitate major changes in society.” Read more.
