I'm not a fan of Henry VIII, no matter how played. As "Doctor of the Church," his antics only rival some in the church today. He and his daughter Elizabeth I managed to execute lots of people, not pay soldiers their due, act out of paranoia, mangle any research into liturgics and theology, and make a farce out of laws. He didn't write "Greensleeves" either. I prefer the Blackadder interpretations of the period in question. I bet that Henry would have been a good football player... in the locker room.
