Henry VIII (ITV 2003, Ray Winstone, Sean Bean)

Published

on

Ray Winstone brings history’s most beguiling monarch to life in this story of Henry VIII and his six wives, with Helena Bonham-Carter as scheming seductress Anne Boleyn and a star-studded cast including David Suchet, Emilia Fox, Sean Bean, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Joss Ackland and Michael Maloney.

From the moment that Henry Tudor casts aside his faithful wife Katherine of Aragon for the bewitching and determined Anne Boleyn, he sets himself on a course of disastrous marriages. The pious yet tragic Jane Seymour, bitter outcast Anne of Cleves, the adulterous child bride Katherine Howard and his devoted carer Katherine Parr all followed, despite Anne’s bloody fate. The lucky ones were ruthlessly cast aside. The not so lucky ones were sent to their death.

ITV1’s tale of Henry VIII also reveals the destruction Henry often left in his wake during his extraordinary 38 year reign. Violent conflict, both within the population and the church, left England reeling while its complex and charismatic King turned from handsome playboy to a bitter invalid desperate for a son and heir to the throne.

Supporting cast include Emilia Fox as Jane Seymour, David Suchet as Cardinal Wolsey, Sean Bean as revolutionary Robert Aske, Charles Dance as the Duke of Buckingham, Mark Strong as the Duke of Norfolk and Michael Maloney as Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. Joss Ackland will make a cameo appearance as Henry VII.

Copper’s End (ITV 1971, Bill Owen, Josephine Tewson)

Published

ATV Logo

Sitcom Coppers End was very much from the Will Hay  (and Ask A Policeman in particular) school of comedy; When the series began the boys at the station led by Sergeant Stan Short, had the art of doing nothing down to a tee, so much so that they were even able to hire out their squad car for all manner of weddings, driving lessons and even stock car racing. All until the arrival of the super efficient W.P.S. Penny Pringle that is.
