Wolf Hall Episode 5

1a0cb0 ‘Crows’

Cromwell visits the ailing Katherine. Henry is now head of the English Church. He refuses to let Katherine see her daughter Mary. He also begins taking more notice of Jane Seymour, much to Anne’s anger.
Henry nearly dies in a jousting tournament, and following Anne’s miscarriage he declares he will never have a son by her.

Another good episode of the popular drama. Rylance sparkles yet again, and Damian Lewis’s portrayal of  the King – changed following his jousting accident – was remarkable. Understated music and realistic acting makes this episode of the drama particularly memorable.

MY RATING: ***.5 / *****
