Public Broadcasting is currently running a series from the UK called Wolf Hall, The story of Thomas Cromwell, first Earl of Essex.
It is a bit dry, and the stepson and grandkids got bored rather quickly, and left us to enjoy it in peace.
I've read a bit on the period, and watched a series that focused on Henry VIII and his split with the Vatican, but now to see the events from the perspective of others is enjoyable.
I have enjoyed Damien Lewis in a number of roles. He seems to do a fine job as Henry.
Mark Rylance is superb as Cromwell.
