Joss Stone does look good. Anne Of Cleves was actually quite a beautiful woman according to her portrait. Just a bit frumpy, perhaps.

Did anyone else cry when Anne was beheaded?? The last episode was incredibly moving :(

I bawled my eyes out - even though I knew what was coming. I thought she did a great job.

I decided I'm buying the Tudors whenever it comes out on DVD, and I can't wait.

I sinished season 1, should have continued wacthing it on showtime a year ago but oh well. I felt sorry for Henry's sister, Cathrine too. I've never felt sorry for Wosley but by the end I kinda did having everyone turn thier back on him, just goes to prove court life as not a care-free luxury right.

I thought Anne's final scene was well-done too, and I liked the way the executioner organised it so that she didn't even realise the final blow was coming. Since reading The Other Boleyn Girl, and now seeing this series, I think Anne was very unfairly treated, she was a bit of a liability admittedly but Henry had such a knack of twisting and changing situations to suit himself that I think she was forced to act like that - a much maligned woman! :mad:

In the last episode she asked if she could be sent to a nunnery and I thought good point but then remembered that the nunneries would have been destroyed by the Reformation.. unless she meant a nunnery in France :confused:
