You once wrote that you enjoyed the Tudor espisodes on HBO. I have only watched two shows but will watch it in its entirity soon. It seems that Henry VIII never ages in the series and when he is with Anne Howard he isn’t the discusting man with the sour smell and bad leg. In reading Phillipe’s books and watching the series the six wives of Henry the VIII it was a wonderful job as Henry aged in proportion to his wives. I love your website and look forward to getting a new stories to read…thank you for all your time and commitment.
They finally age Henry in Season 4 of The Tudors but only by greying his hair slightly and padding him out a bit, they certainly don't make him as big as he was in real life at that time. I can't say it bothers me too much because I think that Michael Hirst does show a deterioration in Henry's character. In the first series, we see him as a young, sexy King, full of vitality and then in the final season we see him suffering badly with his leg and health in general, becoming even more bitter and twisted, and being a shadow of his former self. I think it does get the point across.
I'm so glad that you enjoy using the site - thank you for your support.
