I agree with you on the Culpepper front - which is why his execution pleased me immensely

I saw the final episode last night on BBC 2 and it was a good finish. I started watching most of season 1, then I missed seasons 2 and 3. Now I just caught the tail-end of the last season. I noticed that Jonathan Rhys Meyers (or Jonathan Michael Francis O'Keeffe - a bit of blarney!) suddenly developed a gruff Irish accent when he played the elder Henry, a bit distracting at times. From what I've seen, I think it's a good drama and whilst seeing the blouses of ladies come-orff (sic) can be titillating; I did think the sex scenes were overplayed a little. I managed to catch Sir Thomas More's execution scene on YouTube, quite a powerful scene and a great line he delivers: "the king's good servant, and God's first."

So I've started watching this and I'm currently on the second series. It's ok but it's really the actual historical story that keeps it going rather than the writing. The story of Henry VIII really makes it hard to not make an interesting show.

Also Rhys Meyers is a terrible actor.

Anyone else here do extras work on this? I'm in the 4th episode of the last series for a brief moment.

All in all it was a fantastic day and I got to meet the cast (who are all incredibly sound it must be said).
