VIEWERS of Wolf Hall have complained to the BBC that it did not feature the promised wolves.
Nathan Muir of Stourbridge said: “I like all the wolf movies – American Werewolf in London, Dog Soldiers, Teen Wolf, Teen Wolf 2 – so I sat through the fucking boring history bit waiting for someone to either become a wolf or to be attacked by one.
“My guess was that the ginger out of Homeland would get a pet wolf that he set on people, or that as king he’d have to go out and single-handedly battle a pack of wolves threatening the country. Either would have been fine.
“The BBC should heed the story about the boy who cried wolf, who lied repeatedly and so nobody listened to when there was actually a wolf in his television programmes.”
A BBC spokesman said: “Following viewer feedback, the next episode will show Thomas Cromwell dramatically transforming into a werewolf at the full moon and reveal that the true history of England is the secret war between them and the vampires.
“It might seem a jarring U-turn for the narrative, but the pigs want their shit.”
