Marionette Puppets on ' The Tudors ' - Showtime - BBC
Some time ago I carved a couple of marionettes of King Henry and Catherine Howard for Showtime's series of 'The Tudors'.
They were made in June 2009 and whilst the show has aired in most of the rest of the world its taken a long time to get on the BBC schedule.
The marionettes I made feature in Episode 1 (season 4) to be shown on the BBC on Saturday 22nd Jan 2011. The sequence features (future Queen) Catherine performing a rather naughty little private show for the King. It appears about half way through the first episode.
Unfortunately due to the rushed nature of the job the puppets were on their way before the paint was dry - almost - so I wasn't able to get any good pictures of them, but here is Henry prior to final finishing and dressing.
