Who wears it best? (Tudor Edition)

19 October 2011

Look, you’ll just have to bear with me for this one – I’m up to my neck in two books and now appear to be writing a third as well. I don’t know how it happened – I was just lying on the sofa in my study (I love typing that out – I have a study! With a sofa! That I can lie on to just THINK about things!) last night, minding my own business when BOOM, the idea for the third book came to me in a flash and then BOOM POW KERPOW, hot on its heels, the idea for the fourth hit me too.

So there we go. Four books coming up – one in Victorian London, one in seventeenth century London and France and TWO IN EIGHTEENTH CENTURY ENGLAND.

In the meantime, let’s have a look at the classic open necked white linen shirt look that keeps us all watching interminable dramas about the Tudor dynasty. Look, I may have said that I am suffering from Tudor Ennui right now, but I never claimed that it is all bad, did I?

So, who wears it best? Apologies for staging what appears to be nothing more than a gratuitous Tudor dry T shirt competition.

Henry Cavill as Charles Brandon in The Tudors.

Tom Hardy as Robert Dudley in The Virgin Queen.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII in The Tudors.

Clive Owen as Walter Rayleigh in Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

Joseph Fiennes in Shakespeare in Love and/or Elizabeth.

Which is best? Anyone else you’d like to nominate? Is this my worst blog post ever?
