Henry VIII costume porn – although that’s perhaps overstating it. We couldn’t claim any expertise as to accuracy or anything like that, but we’d guess he’s going to wear more impressive outfits than this at some point in the story.

We have to say, he makes a much better choice to play Henry than Jonathan Rhys Myers. We don’t care how many times people defended it with “But he was thinner and good-looking as a young man!” We thought it was a ludicrous bit of casting, akin to Angelina Jolie playing Elizabeth I. Damian’s just right for the part. Looking forward to this one, which should be airing in the U.S. on PBS some time next year.
