Starkey on Wolf Hall: 'a deliberate perversion of fact'

Esteemed historian and academic David Starkey chooses not to watch popular period drama, Wolf Hall.

Starkey described himself as a "huge believer of fact" and simply replied, "No" when asked if he watched the drama.

He described Wolf Hall as "a deliberate perversion of fact" and that "there isn't a scrap of evidence" for the way that certain characters, namely Thomas Cromwell, are depicted.
