Some might quibble with Worsley's version of events. But she is a brilliant storyteller, whose flair for drama soon lures you in.
"When it comes to history I am shameless," she has said. "I will do whatever it takes to get people involved." The result is another Tudor "soap opera", of which any author should be proud.
