Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wolf Hall is a historical drama about Thomas Cromwell, an important advisor to King Henry VIII. The drama is largely faithful to real historical events, though it jumps around in time, which may confuse younger viewers or those with less background in the history of the English monarchy. Events move briskly; viewers may find themselves doing quick Web searches as they watch. There are many references to sex, virginity, body parts, sexual acts, and procreation; characters also drink alcohol. References to war and violent threats to political rivals; a boy is beaten terribly by his father until he vomits. Henry VIII was known for executing his advisors and wives; viewers can expect to see this kind of behavior. A mother and two little girls die suddenly; we see their bodies and relatives kneeling over them, weeping.

Sexual Content

Flirting, kissing, many discussions of Catherine of Aragon's virginity at the time of marriage, discussion of sexual acts and body parts.

Violence

Many references to war and violence; a young boy is beaten terribly and kicked in the stomach by his father until he vomits and blood streaks his face.
