I've recently been watching The Tudors, and just started the second season. I know the show takes all kinds of liberties with history, and I'd like to more about what is made up -- but without any spoilers. I know so little about that era that even hearing that Person X gets beheaded (as any fule kno) is too much.
Is there anywhere where I can go and read about the show -- not Tudor history in general, but this specific TV series -- one episode at a time? Something like:
Season 1, episode 5: The character Cardinal Jones is based on the real-life Cardinal Smith of France.
Season 1, episode 6: Horses weren't invented yet. Lady Edwina actually died of the plague, not a trampling.
Season 1, episode 7: The song "Greensleeves" was actually written by Thomas Schmoopy in 1576.
... where I wouldn't see notes on any specific episode until I wanted to.
