A fun series to watch - and makes it easier to keep track of who's who - the list got long with ol Henry the serial killer. I enjoyed the format used to go back and forth in time.

Not Dr. Worsley's best work, but still done well. She provides fly-on-the-wall observations and narratives as historical events are reenacted around her. I was relieved that the dramatization wasn't over-done, as it is all-too-often (and all-to-easily!) done.

I saw this on TV, and it was worthwhile having a re-watch. Was very interesting portrayal of each wife. Very well narrated, acted and gorgeous costumes (poor laundry staff of the time...).

Erm... what else did Henry VIII do other than manipulate to get rid of/trade-in his current wife.
Oh yea, he started a church in order to do that ( extra comment from me!).

Made me sympathetic for the superceded Queen/s.

Interesting, and done in a somewhat different format that keeps you interested. Highly recommended for teaching that certain period in history.
