Anybody seen this one yet?
I liked seeing a graceful Catherine Parr rather than sticking her in as the maternal nursemaid type. I was a bit disappointed that she was so wooden, but maybe that's the script's fault! It was also nice to see her relationship with Thomas Seymour as I've found it usually happens off screen or post-Henry.
Henry seems to be cutting down on the hassle of courting! He knows what he wants and sends someone to sort it. There's Kingship for you!
It was good to see the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth. Their conflict in later life is often all anyone remembers. I think it makes that development all the sadder when you see how close they used to be. Ellizabeth's 'I will never marry' speech seemed fitting. After her mother, Jane Seymour and now Catherine Howard you can understand how she might have a tainted view on marriage!

I like how they are portraying Catherine Parr as well. She seems to be an intelligent, no-nonsense woman who will be able to deal with Henry..
Mary and Elizabeth's relationship is a good one as well. I know everyone only remembers how they were as adults, but I believe at one time, they did have an affectionate relationship. I don't blame Elizabeth for her decision, she was left without a mother because her mother married her father.. Poor thing..
