    The Tudors really is a shockingly bad historical television programme. Historical innacuracies galore surrounded by outrageous sexual gratuity. It does have one saving grace however: Jeremy Northam’s fantastic portrayal of Sir Thomas More. The storyline of his refusal to take the Kings oath and subsequent betrayal in court by Richard Rich is really powerful stuff, and the only part of this series worth watching.
