: Well, I liked the series. I knew it was mostly
: fiction, but it made me read about the true
: history and the characters. I had no idea
: about Margaret of York, the Duchess of

: I also liked the previous series, "the

: Incidentally, the actress who played

: bit over the top when she burst into
: hysterical crying after Henry told her he
: wanted to end their marriage.) She is most
: recently well known for playing Victor
: Meldrew's wife Margaret in the long-running
: British TV sitcom, "One Foot in the
