I also liked the previous series, "the White Queen", which I think was more accurate. Thanks to that series and what I read, I am now an "expert" on the Wars of the Roses. After the series, the TV channel showed 2 documentaries about the true history behind the series. A pity it has not happened now, too. But there is one TV documentary about Henry VII that I watched some years ago.I will see it again. It is still in my computer. And I have checked it is also on You Tube "Henry VII the winter King".
But being fiction and being ridiculous are different things. No idea why nobody cared to see that the "Spanish scene" was simply ridiculous.
Sorry, no idea about the British sitcom you have mentioned.
