Henry VIII is Alive!!

Posted By on November 27, 2009

Thank you so much to Barb from The Tudor Tutor who told me about these wonderful BBC comedy sketches featuring one of my favourite actors, Brian Blessed, as Henry VIII or Henry 8.0! The BBC says of these sketches:

“The Tudor king is alive and well, and living in a suburban semi with his long-suffering sixth wife Catherine Parr. He has embraced modern technology and lives his life online – insulting the King of France on Facebook, surfing for honeys, and blocking the Pope on Twitter. Very much the modern man – he likes Top Gear, Kings of Leon and Sunday roasts, he dislikes Michael Buble, I.T. helpdesks and Lily Allen’s manager. These clips offer an insight into what happens when a 16th century king meets 21st century suburbia. Eat your heart out David Starkey here’s the real thing!”

Here is one clip as a taster and you can see the others on our “Henry VIII is Alive” page or on the BBC Comedy site.
