Wolf Hall

Isis Town and Country - - Life | TV Guide -

SUN­DAY, ABC, 9.30PM

Hi­lary Man­tel’s phe­nom­e­nally pop­u­lar Booker prize-win­ning his­tor­i­cal nov­els Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bod­ies are brought to life in this unan­i­mously ac­claimed, Golden Globe-win­ning mini-series. Os­car win­ner Mark Ry­lance (left) as main pro­tag­o­nist Thomas Cromwell and Damien Lewis (Home­land) as Henry VIII are both su­perb in this slow-burn story of power and pol­i­tics that would not look out of place to­day, were it not for those pe­riod cos­tumes. Tonight’s episode sees Cardinal Wolsey (Jonathan Pryce) re­treat to York, giv­ing Cromwell the op­por­tu­nity he’s been look­ing for to get closer to the king.
