After an unceremonious role as a construction worker in the NBC movie, "Take Me Home Again" (1994), Waddington returned to the past with "Royal Deceit" (1994), Saxo Grammaticus' 12th century chronicle about a young prince who sees his father and brother murdered by his uncle and feigns madness to exact revenge - the very story William Shakespeare based Hamlet on. In another period film, "Carrington" (1995), Waddington played a strapping young army officer who marries painter Dora Carrington (Emma Thompson), but attracts the attention of literary critic and author, Lytton Strachey (Jonathan Pryce). He next played a British SAS officer sent with a team to destroy SCUD missiles inside Iraq during Operation Desert Storm in "The One That Got Away" (A&E, 1996), before portraying the onetime cellmate of a leftist political activist (Robert Carlyle) who plans the robbery of a major London security firm in "Face" (1997). Another unceremonious role - this time as a cowboy in a bank in "Breakdown" (1998) - was followed by a meatier role as a ruthless explorer trying to find the lost city of Opar in "Tarzan and the Lost City" (1998).
Following a bit part in Tim Burton's creepy "Sleepy Hollow" (1999), Waddington appeared in "The Parole Officer" (2001), playing a former boxer-turned-fisherman and only one of three convicts ever rehabilitated by a klutzy parole officer (Steve Coogan). Waddington was little more than window dressing in "The Hole" (2003), a straight-to-video thriller about four private school students who investigate a mysterious hole leading to an abandoned World War II bomb shelter. He next played King Prasutagus in "Warrior Queen" (PBS, 2003), leader of a Celtic tribe on the British Isles in the 1st century A.D. who dies and leaves his queen (Alex Kingston) to defend his people against the Roman emperor Nero (Andrew Lee Potts). Waddington next portrayed Thomas Cromwell, 1st Earl of Essex and chief minister to King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) in "The Tudors" (2007- ), Showtime's lavish 10-part series depicting the brutal monarch in younger, thinner times, before he split with the Catholic Church.
