It saddens me to report that this programme was rather bad (IMO). It even took liberties with known, recorded historical facts, and the bloke who played Henry was about as charismatic as his oversized hat & as weedy as, well, me. And so I take my leave of you all, and Channel 5.

Oh no. I’m sorry to hear this. I thought maybe with Susannah Lipscomb it would be a decent show. I won’t go hunting for it then.

Steve I once described Lard Arse as about as romantic as an exocet missile, and just as deadly too. As for his charm, well I personally think he’s got all the charm of a cold dog turd.
He’s actually the sort of person that makes e want to stamp my feet and clap my hands all over his face. Seriously I couldn’t bear to be in the same room with him, for more than a couple of hours, without wanting to rip his head off and go bowling with it.

Henry was a charismatic man; he had many talents, and was intelligent and confidence. I can imagine people were easily drawn to him. He seems to have suffered a psychological decline but for the most part he strikes me as a very charismatic and alluring man. Indeed, I, and I believe many others, would certainly enjoy having a conversation with him. It’s a shame that the show did not capture that. I can’t help but feel a tad sorry for Henry; whilst his wives (and daughters) are hyper sexualised and glamorised, he is often portrayed in a heavily unflattering light.

I must admit, I did not watch the documentary. I’ve taken a vow of celibacy in regards to Lipscomb’s work: she made a disrespectful comment about Katherine Howard on the anniversary of her death and then tried to justify doing so. If her comment itself wasn’t offensive, it still indicated a lack of respect for historical figures and certainly cast doubts over the reliability of her work. So I must admit that, spiteful and immature as it is, I do feel a trifle smug at the documentary getting poor reviews.
