Did You Know?


Near the end Henry VIII sits at a table upon which is a dish with many carambola fruits, also known as star fruits. The scientific name is Averrhoa carambola. He mistakenly states that these are from "the new world," thereby giving the impression they'd been brought back from the Americas. In fact, the carambola is from south-central Asia, a few islands in the Indian ocean, and southeast Asia as far as Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. See more »

A Pilgrimage of Grace - job opportunities for elderly actors.
28 August 2009 | by mt-kailash-1See all my reviews

This episode deals with the aftermath of the Pilgrimage of Grace where Henry -still resolutely and inaccurately slimline- take a vicious and bloody revenge on the faithful led by Robert Aske.

This episode is set in 1536 when Robert Aske was 36 years old . He is played (superbly) by 59 year old Gerald McSorley.

Cardinal von Waldburg makes an appearance. He was 22 years old in 1536 and was promoted to Cardinal 8 years later. However he is played by the 80 year old Max von Sydow - a 58 year gap.

"The Tudors" contempt for any grasp on historical reality continues apace.
