King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Myers) bids to annul his marriage to Katherine of Aragon (Maria Doyle Kennedy) in order to marry the younger Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer). His decision centres on one unshakable ambition: to father a son and heir to the Tudor dynasty he inherited from his father. However, the choice is met by refusal from the newly elected Pope Paul III (Peter O’Toole) and leads to a political and theological battle that will change history. Taking on the Catholic Church, the King launches a savage and ultimately bloody bid to be master of his own spiritual as well as secular destiny. The Tudors, Season II, filled with blood, lust and betrayal, will leave you breathless as King Henry VIII takes both his personal and political ambitions to new heights.
