Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]I love costume dramas, I love history, I love literature, good writing and acting, but if you love any of these - avoid this series. I wanted to enjoy it, and can overlook a lot if the writing or the performances are good, but this is just dreadful on all fronts. Watch "Cranford" instead which is a delight. The writing/script for the Tudors is puerile. Think of how an adolescent boy's fantasy of being Henry VIII might be like and this is it. Women drop their drawers and strip off every five minutes to get a jolly good rodgering by Henry. Between these episodes you get a bit of history over simplified and over explained for the uneducated morons the writer assumes us to be. The only enjoyment is to be astounded at the ludicrous dialogue and the hammy cardboard performances. What utter utter rubbish, what a disappointment. I'm just surprised they didn't cast Posh as Anne Boleyn!

If you're a Henry Cavill fan, you're in for a treat!By a customer , 02 Aug 2012Brilliant, was hooked from the first episode! Highly recommended and if you're a Henry Cavill fan then you're certainly in for a treat!
Great SeriesBy degreekio (3 reviews) from Southend-on-Sea , 12 Jul 2012I was captivated from the first series to the last, an excellent series of English history. The only thing now is finding something to replace it with.
Addictive, gripping and beautifully doneBy Hazros (2 reviews) , 11 Apr 2012I love this, it is very addictive. It is aesthetically pleasing as there is a huge budget so the set and costumes have huge attention to detail and there is a very attractive cast. Jonathan Rhys Myers is very believable as Henry VIII.
Not my sort of thingBy MickeyMouse3000 (299 reviews) from Dorset, England , 22 Jan 2012I was hoping this would appeal to me by delivering really powerful moving drama and exciting twists. Unfortunately, it didn't do either and was really quite boring. I gave it three episodes, as sometimes I feel you need to get into the story and characters to appreciate it fully. But it just wasn't getting any better - just too slow with an uninteresting script and characters. I can see how some people will really like this - it is well acted with intelligent dialogue and great costumes etc. But unfortunately not for me - even the lovely naked girls popping up now and again wasn't enough to keep me watching.

Does what it says on the tin.By Lupinsbo (3 reviews) , 08 May 2011This series has been unfairly judged-by both sides of the argument. It's gloss, of course it is, but isnt alot of great drama? (How many ugly people are there in Lost?). Historically enriching? No. A master class in acting? No. Enjoyable and entartaining? Yes! And isnt that why we all got into film in the first place? If you are prepared to leave your snobbery at the door, and you are interested in the monarchy, this is a damn fine watch
