Summer Reissue: The Best Viral Wolf Hall Memes That 16th Century England Never Saw

Josh Davis brought a bit of 2016 to 16th century England through creating a slew of hilarious memes from BBC drama Wolf Hall

Wolf Hall is a BBC drama documenting the power dynamics of the court of Henry VIII. Unfortunately, while the 16th century had many things – the Church, fancy clothes etc – memes were not yet popular. We decided to fix that tragic historical accident by commissioning real life millennial Josh Davis to watch the brooding, brilliant show and create a series of Vines.
