Having a bit of a Tudor -fest at the moment

Like everyone else I suspect,  I’m fascinated by this  period of history.  So, after reading Hilary Mantel and seeing the mesmeric ‘Wolf Hall’ on  TV,  I embarked on ‘Lamentation’ , C J Sansom’s latest book in his Shardlake series. Once again I was gripped by the characters and all the well-WP_20150318_002researched incidental details of Tudor life. There was the usual build up of menace and intrigue, so I enjoyed it, but just found it a bit repetitious in summarising once again all the differences in the religious factions jostling for power as Henry v111’s reign came to a close.

However I would love to see the whole series televised, and I can visualise Mark Rylance as a great Shardlake.
