I'm sorry, but how is that possible? they're up to Jane Seymour already and he was only married to his next two wives for a very short time.  Also, his last wife outlives him.

Time travel? They should do that, it'd be brilliant.

Has anyone been watching Season 3? Just watched the first 2 eps and I thought the Pilgramage of Grace was handled very well. Also good to see they're dealing with his gout that in turn led to him bulking up.

Am I the only one still watching this? I'm really enjoying Season 3, even though things are nipping along at a hell of a pace. Only Ep.4 and Jane Seymour is dead, Edward is born, Mary's a woman, Cromwell's a bastard and Robert Aske and half of Yorkshire have been strung up. Huzzah!

Henry Cavill is doing one hell of a job in this series though. Honestly reckon he'll be the next Bond.

Just started to watch Season 3 and enjoying it too. The great thing about this show is that at only 10 episodes per season (although I am sure I read somewhere, this season will only have 8?) it never dwells or gets bogged down so to speak.

Going to be very interesting how they play the weight issue, you are right Timon, Cavill is a brilliant actor in one of his first major roles.

I have just picked up a copy of the first 2 seasons for 14 off eBay so going to enjoy going back over old episodes. Also according to some sources they have green lit season 4 for next year!

Joss Stone as Anne of Cleves? Really?

Ah well.

It's nipping along at quite a pace.

"Just me still watching this then? "

Oh no, Peppermint...I am watching this avidly - I love this series and know the story very well!
I have just watched series 3 in its entirety, courtesy of the Internet, and it's incredibly good - Joss Stone as Anne of Cleves was very surprising casting - I thought they would be better off with a really plain dumpy Germanic hausfrau, but there you go !! She actually does a great job with the characterisation even though she is actually quite beautiful !!
Go figure...



When the whole drama started, we didn't even start watching it - we went out on a Thursday evening to our regular pub quiz, and so didn't even get started...later on we caught up on DVD, and then I did a massive post in my blog all about the casting of series1, which can be read here :-

http://wendylady1.livejournal.com/48506.html

Go and read and see if you agree with any of it !! I'll have to update this soon, I think.
Meanwhile, I think that no-one is contributing to this thread because Series 3 has only  just started airing maybe - the BBC is only up to episode three this week, I think - watch this thread go wild when it really gets going...

Oops - sorry Peppermint - don't know why I misread the name !! I have duly edited my post.
Anyway, you aren't the only one watching the Tudors,...don't really know why this forum isn't buzzing considering it's on our screens at the mo'...

Season 4 starts soon and the trailer looks like the political intrigue and sex is still present and correct.

Also good to see Henry has porked up accordingly...

And David O'Hara and Joely Richardson are new cast members....

Good season opener, Catherine Howard is both vacant and appealing, turning the head of the many courtiers, David O'Hara rocks as usually and I like how they're developing Mary (and Elizabeth) for a possible fifth and sixth season once Henry passes on.

Good to see HBO Rome's Allen Leach (Agrippa) showing up as Francis Dereham.

This season is really rocketing along - Henry Cavill is really emboding his role and David O'Hara is chewing the scenery.

to be fair, the bbc are pre empting it, putting the tudors on at stupid o clock and making us wait a year to watch it legit. So they were probably worried they'd be waiting until hell would freeze over to be able for aunty beeb to finish it before releasing the dvd

I think once the whole collection is cheap on DVD i'll pick it up and rewatch it in one go. I really did enjoy it, but the time between seasons has made me forget whole chunks of it.

think my recent a level in tudor history is one of the only things keeping me up with the story at the moment. Still I've seen 37 out of the 38 episodes. And I've thought to myself that once I get my own place, I may pick up the whole lot on blu ray. My mum has them all on dvd (i should know, i bought her them).

http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/tvandradioblog/2011/apr/01/the-tudors-history-revelations?commentpage=all#start-of-comments

loved henry still messing with his subjects to the end.

I only really watched the Katherine Howard ep's of this season.  The guy who played Thomas Culpepper was hot.  Anyway watched the last ep.

The way they aged Henry was good; i almost got teary.  The ghosts of his past wives visiting him was good and the brief flashbacks to his life and important ministers etc was well done. 

The Tudors may not have been historically accurate but it was bloody good entertainment.

Season 2 is must for viewing.  The last ep of it was one of the best i've ever seen.

BTW - i  feel that JRM's really grow into his role season by season.
