COMPLETE SHOW SYNOPSIS:
Wolf Hall is a British television serial first broadcast on BBC Two in January 2015. The six-part series is an adaptation of two of Hilary Mantel’s novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, a fictionalised biography documenting the rapid rise to power of Thomas Cromwell in the court of Henry VIII through to the death of Sir Thomas More, followed by Cromwell’s success in freeing the king of his marriage to Anne Boleyn. Wolf Hall was the first broadcast in April 2015 in the United States on PBS and in Australia on BBC First.
Gregory Cromwell, son of Thomas Cromwell, is a young man coming of age with confidence – still naive, but with potential.
