"Wolf Hall" - upcomming BBC mini-series on the Tudors

BBC turns best-selling Henry VIII novel and Booker Prize winner 'Wolf Hall' into a mini-series
Quote:
It had more betrayals, affairs, alliances and scheming than a soap opera. Now the BBC is to turn best-selling novel Wolf Hall, which laid bare the vicious realities of the court of Henry VIII, into a mini-series. The six-part adaptation will be based on Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize winning bestseller, and her follow-up Bring Up The Bodies.
I've read the "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up The Bodies" and they are quite nice. Both give pretty sound information on the Tudors, and a fascinating insight into Thomas Cromwell's rise to power. Here is a hope the mini-series will be nothing like The Tudors!

I wonder when it will air? Sounds like an interesting project.

This has apparently been in the works for a year or so, if picked up it was supposed to air on BBC2 but it's being considered for BBC1 as well apparently. I'm tired of Tudor shows, there are a few other interesting royals.

I agree, Lumutqueen, about too many Tudor shows, and that there are other interesting people. I admire the Gloucesters, and their family has several possibilties for GREAT shows. Of course some of the interesting ones are current, and that would not do as fiction. But just the story of Princess Alice and her husband during the war, and before she married, and her struggle to come to grips with Prince William's porphyria, and William's love that could not be fulfilled--talk about romance! A few GREAT roles for actors here. Who could play Princess Alice? Lots of mature actresses might choose that part.
