After a quick delivery from Amazon, we just spent the past week working our way through four Seasons of ‘The Tudors‘ and it was bloody enjoyable. I used to love History when I was at School. But because of the vagaries of ‘option choices’ back then I wasn’t allowed to choose it as a subject I could study from third year. Boo.
Of course this probably isnt the kind of series you can sit a kid down in front of to help with studying. Because, er, to describe it as a bit rompy is a bit of an understatement … I’m not knocking that of course ;) Really enjoyable and quite historically accurate.
They did well with the story though and really managed to create a great atmosphere.
Thoroughly recommend it, if you like this kind of thing.
