Showtime’s lush historical drama “The Tudors” opens its fourth and final season with a new queen. With Henry VIII as the groom, you wait for the ax to fall.
A five-episode arc tracks Henry’s (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) disastrous fifth marriage to teenager Katherine Howard (Tamzin Merchant).
Though Katherine shares the same fate as Anne Boleyn, this story doesn’t feel like a replay. Anne was condemned on false charges. Katherine was guilty.
