    Good shout, Neil. I'd forgotten that was on! Was it any good overall?

    Anyway, I've downloaded from iPlayer...

    Btw, are you looking forward to the new season of The Walking Dead starting on Monday? Should be a cracker!

    Good, as in enjoyable ? No. It was a horrific watch, history I knew a little off but to see it dramatised left me upset. I am aware of the persecution of Catholics in England, and what was done in the name of Protestantism, but to see what the Anglican church did, what the crown did was truly awful. By the same regard seeing what the Inquisition did to heretics, not Catholics was also horrific.

    My view is none of these people regardless of denomination were actually Christians.

    I thought that it was well done, acting was good, it looked good but the topic is horrible. One point I would make that any Englishman or woman burning a Guy on bonfire night who bad mouths the Orange Order or Bonfire builders in Northern Ireland needs to examine their rank hypocrisy, because Bonfire Night is exactly the same thing, anti Catholic hate.

    I do feel it was horrifically violent and being so close to the watershed, well I think a later start time might have been better. It pulls no punches depicting people being hung drawn and quartered, crushed to death and burnt at the stake.
    Regards Neil

    not got through season 1 yet. no interest in violence for the fun of it in programs. its not needed to be shown graphically like that imv. One of the reasons I admired the film makers of yesteryear as they could imply stuff just as well. doesnt bother me it its intrinsic and not overly done. Warewolf in london for instance
