Wicked William the Conqueror: Top 10!

Horrible Histories Series 6 Episode 2- Wicked William the Conqueror-1-title screen

Another fantastic episode, and Kevin Eldon and all the other cast did a great job! Plus it was great to see Lawry Lewin back, who will play Oliver Cromwell and acted in ‘Amazing Scientists’, along with Dan Li who was the lady in ‘Great Saxon Bake Off’! Anyway, here’s the top 10 pictures from the episode!

Two more things-

Firstly, did you notice the mistake? William’s got permission to hunt, but not invade England! When interviewed in Battle of the Day he held up the ‘Preservation of Grain Act’ from Series 5 Episode 5,  rather than another document! D’oh!

And finally, how did Kevin do? Do you prefer Kevin Eldon playing William the Conqueror, or original star, Simon Farnaby playing William the Conqueror? Vote, vote, vote!

One of our earlier posts: ‘Here comes Series 6!’ was slightly wrong. It appears the order of episodes is different-and so here they are, some with official titles:

S6E4: Mardy Mary Queen of Scots-8th June

“We follow the young Mary as she stumbles from young girl in Scotland, to Queen in France, back to Queen in Scotland, and finally to Elizabeth I’s public enemy no. 1 – with a bit of Queenian Rhapsody thrown in for good measure! Meanwhile across the world we meet silver-nosed Danish scientist Tycho Brahe, and Mr H gives us his unique take on the epic Battle of Lepanto in another History’s Craziest Fools”

S6E5: Naughty Napoleon-15th June

“We follow Napoleon as he rises from humble beginnings to be the Emperor of France, bashing most of Europe along the way, and ultimately meeting his Waterloo at, well, Waterloo! Meanwhile across the world we meet the Indian traveller who brought Shampoo to the world.”

S6E6: Horrid Henry VIII-22nd June

“We meet the young Henry as he struggles with his boring dad Henry VII, before becoming King himself, and going through wives like most people go through toothbrushes! Meanwhile across the world we meet the great Ottoman leader Suleiman the Magnificent in Turkey, and the mad, bad, and very dangerous to know Emperor Zhengde in China.”
