Satur­day, SBS, 7.35pm

Isis Town and Country - - Life | Tv Guide -

Suzan­nah Lip­scomb (right) and Dan Jones’ jour­ney through the re­la­tion­ship his­tory of his­tory’s most fa­mous wife-taker comes to a close tonight, as the his­to­ri­ans re­visit the last of Henry VIII’s mar­riages. The docu­d­rama has done a pretty good job of flesh­ing out the women who stood be­side the Tu­dor monarch be­yond their method of de­thron­ing, as they are usu­ally de­fined, and Henry’s last two wives are the fo­cus of this fourth and fi­nal episode. Cather­ines Howard and Parr were queens num­ber five and six; the for­mer young, beau­ti­ful but adul­ter­ous; the lat­ter older and wiser, but a lit­tle too pushy on the sub­ject of re­li­gious re­form.
