If it turns up on free to air TV here in Australia I might watch it if it
doesn't compete with something good. I'll take the opportunity to do some
hand sewing and laugh at the alternative universe they've made up with
'Henry 8' (even that makes me laugh, it sounds like a line out of a little
kids story book ' Henry 8 and ate and ate and ate.' ;->, it's in Arabic
numerals so it's obviously pronounced eight not the eighth like it would be
in Roman numerals) and Princess Margaret Dowager Queen of France. Plus
because the costumes aren't that interesting I can look at my sewing rather
than at the TV.
