Plot Synopsis

Told from the perspective of Thomas Cromwell, WOLF HALL is an historical drama, adapted from Hilary Mantzel's novels "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies," that chronicles the rise of Cromwell, the son of a humble blacksmith who became King Henry VIII's chief minister, as he navigates the corridors of power in the Tudor court. Having failed to secure the annulment of the King Henry's marriage to Katherine of Aragon, Cardinal Wolsey is stripped of his powers. His hopes of returning to the king's favor lie with the ever-loyal Thomas Cromwell, but Cardinal Wolsey has been forced to move to York. Cromwell remains in London, seeking to return the cardinal to the king's favor. As Cromwell's relationship with Henry deepens, there is unexpected news from the north.
