I am a huge fan of the Showtime series, The Tudors, which follows the life and wives of Henry VIII. Season 4, the final season, begins on April 11. Only two more wives to go!
It recently re-watched the entire series (all three seasons) so that I remember where we left off. I love how this series shows in living color how the English Reformation proceeded. We get to see the villains, such as Thomas Cromwell (who lost his head in the final episode of Season 3). We also get to see St. Thomas More hold fast to Christ.
I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in historical dramas, especially concerning the history of Christianity.
