Many of you have been emailing me in frustration about the fact that “The Tudors” Series 4 is not part of the BBC’s Autumn line-up, asking me if I know when it will be aired in the UK. I share your frustration! It is crazy that it was on in the USA in the Spring and that it comes out on DVD there next month and yet, in the country that Henry VIII ruled over, the land of the Tudors, we are left twiddling our thumbs!
I emailed the BBC a few months ago and they had no idea when they would be airing it and I emailed the BBC again today and got the following reply:-
Many thanks for getting in touch.
I know it must be very frustrating for the viewers and fans of the
Tudors, however I’m afraid a decision as to the transmission date of
series 4 of the Tudors has yet to be made.

Grrrr! Perhaps we all need to complain to the BBC so they know how many people want this series aired. To complain to the BBC, you can go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/homepage/
