I didn't even notice the setting they had for his death scene. There was a crucifix though so it could have been a monastery. But the time and circumstances were off. Of course they covered the circumstances issue by having Henry say that no one must ever know.

As to the quiz... I got Lady-in-waiting.

Henry does sound Irish.

Season 4 has almost finished here, about 3 to go. I think it's the weakest series so far, although it also manages to be the funniest, especially when Henry goes all Oirish - no offence to the Irish, but it just sounds completely out of place, especially as he wasn't like that in the first 3 series!

Haha, I know what you mean about the accents! The guy who plays the Earl of Surrey sounds American. And I'm sure in one episode Hertford said 'we was' instead of 'we were.'
They lost a lot of good actors along the way.. James Frain, Natalie Dormer, etc. Henry's fault for executing their characters of course! Gripes aside I'm still enjoying it.
