  • The fall of Wolsey and the start of the Anglican Church.

    8.0
    I felt this was a slightly anticlimactic conclusion of the first season (and yes, I had to use that phrase after watching the final scene of the episode).

    So, Wolsey dies, but I had expected King Henry to announce the creation of his church, which would then have occurred in season 2.
    Instead, the state of his marriage to Katherine is still left uncertain. Heretics are burned for thoughts that the king shares. Henry knows about the burnings, yet it seems Thomas More does not know about the king's interests in heretic literature, which seems odd.

    For a season finale, you'd perhaps expect the classification, 'conclusion' but this did not feel like a conclusion at all. Too many storylines were not properly wrapped up in my opinion.
