A HISTORICAL feature film about Mary Tudor has been released by an independent production company.

The Twisted Tale of Bloody Mary, made by TV Choice Productions Ltd, was filmed on location in Bromley and tells the story of Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's daughter to Katherine of Aragon. Scenes from the low budget costume drama were shot in Shortlands Park, Hayes, Keston Ponds and Kelsey Park.

Director, Chris Bernard, said: "The film incorporates improvised interviews with sixteenth century peasants and uses non-professional actors to tell the tale of Mary, who by a twist of fate after the death of her brother became queen in 1553.

"She attempted to make England Catholic again and was dubbed 'Bloody Mary' for the burning of Protestants. It is part dramatisation and part documentary. It's an ambitious low-budget feature film which provides an antithesis to the glossy over-romanticised historical drama."
