OTB Meets Michael Hirst (Creator of The Tudors)

The fourth series of The Tudors is available on DVD from this week and we were lucky enough to snatch a interview with the man behind the whole series, Michael Hirst. Showtime’s historama was his first shot at television, but he didn’t need that much of an introduction to that whole period of history after writing two highly successful films about the life of Elizabeth I (starring Cate Blanchett). He spoke to us in depth about the series itself, how he feels about criticisms of historical inaccuracy and of course.. all the sex.
