For those of you who don’t know, the series is based on Hilary Mantel’s novel of the same name and tells the story of Henry VIII, his break with the Catholic Church, and his marriage to Anne Boleyn through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell. This series features an all-star cast and one of the best portrayals of Henry VIII that I have seen to date. Read More New Show Recap: Wolf Hall, Episode One, “Three Card Trick”
