Masterpiece Episode: "Henry VIII"

Season 34, Episode 5
Episode Synopsis: “Henry VIII” (Ray Winstone) works his way through his final four wives in the conclusion of this two-part biography of the mercurial 16th-century tyrant who broke with Rome over his marital woes. That break is still fresh as Part 2 opens with the charismatic Catholic officer Robert Aske (Sean Bean) leading 50,000 troops on a “Pilgrimage of Grace” to London. Henry won't be indulgent with him, but will be indulgent to wife No. 3, Jane Seymour (Emilia Fox), who also crosses him. But then, she supplies him with a son. She also dies of an infection before she can cross him again. Cromwell: Danny Webb. Norfolk: Mark Strong.
