The Tudors Finale – Death of a Monarchy

Jonathan Rhys MeyersBBC 2 aired the final “The Tudors” episode on Saturday night in the UK and I must admit to being very moved watching it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and breathed a satisfied sigh as the credits rolled, I felt that it was a fitting end to the series.

I know that it has its inaccuracies and I will miss shouting at the TV and nudging my poor husband and saying “that didn’t happen in real life”, but it was a great way to spend a Saturday night and I’m now going to have to rewatch the whole 4 series over again to get my “fix”.

Anyway, I have written an episode guide to “Death of a Monarchy”, the final episode – see The Tudors Season 4 Episode 10 – which includes my usual synopsis, list of inaccuracies and trivia. I found the use of symbolism wonderful in this episode and you can find out all about that in my guide.

Do let me know if I have missed out anything else. So far, I have done a few Season 1 episode guides and a few Season 4, I will get round to doing them all, I promise. See

What was your favourite bit in this final episode and what do you think Henry was going to say to the ghost of Anne Boleyn, “Anne, please don’t…”? Let me know your thoughts.
