A brand new period drama to sink your teeth into tonight on BBC2. It depicts the decadent and turbulent early reign of Louis XIV in 1667 in a pre-revolutionary France. For those of you who need a reminder of your European history (all of us), Louis XIV went on to reign for 72 years - the longest monarch of any major country in European history, becoming known as Louis the Great or the 'Sun King'. If that's not enough to get you interested, the show is already caused outrage for having some of "the most graphic sex scenes ever on British TV". Now. That got your attention.
