The lavish historical drama – which takes a fresh look at the life of Henry VIII – returns for a second series. In the opener, divorce Tudor-style is imminent.

As the Catholic Church struggles in vain to control the demands for an annulment by Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, pictured), the King appoints himself head of the Church of England. A cook is blackmailed into poisoning a high-ranking bishop; then boiled alive for his crime.

When Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer, pictured) insists Henry break all contacts with Katherine of Aragon (Maria Doyle-Kennedy), the noble Queen is banished from court.

The Reformation has begun…

The Tudors, showing Friday August 1st on BBC 2 at 9:00pm
