Their Tudor blood, putting them squarely in line for the throne, keeps them in constant jeopardy of plots - their seventeen year-old sister paid the price for one such scheme. But Katherine is her own worst enemy, and Mary must watch as her sister courts disaster from which there may be no return. A beautifully drawn image of an era in which there was no protection other than anonymity or endless watchfulness and cunning. For Tudor history enthusiasts, this is a superb series. It's a 5 and I'll bet we'll eventually see it on Masterpiece Theater.
