4 Extra Debut. Shardlake and Barak arrive in York a day ahead of King Henry VIII’s spectacular Royal Progress to York. Stars Justin Salinger.
Autumn, 1541. King Henry VIII has set out on a spectacular Royal Progress to York, aiming to strike fear and awe into his rebellious northern subjects. Shardlake, and his assistant Barak, arrive in the city a day ahead of the 3,000-strong procession.
Officially there to prepare petitions for the King, they have also been tasked with a secret mission by Archbishop Cranmer: to ensure the welfare of one of the northern conspirators, Sir Edward Broderick, who is to be brought back to London for questioning in the Tower.
Tensions are running high in the city, and soon Shardlake is called to investigate a suspicious death – and stumbles upon a daring plot that has the potential to shake England to its core.
Atmospheric dramatisation of CJ Sansom's third Tudor crime novel featuring hunchback lawyer detective Matthew Shardlake.
