The White Queen
Print
A riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.

The War of the Roses is easily one of the most dramatic periods in history. It's no wonder George RR Martin copied it for a Game of Thrones, it would be difficult to not make a brilliant and character driven story out of it - and yet they managed it here. The people are pretty, the sets gorgeous, and the dialogue pitiful. I am thankful that it inspired me to read lots of Wikipedia on the subject, but really, I could have saved a lot of time by skipping the show and going straight to that.

I had to stay home all day fighting off a 'bug',.. and so I got to watch the whole 580 minutes back-to-back.

What a treat !!
(... and I even beat the bug !)

P.S. I read a short summation about The War of the Roses, just before watching this series.

I think that doing this helped my understanding and enjoyment immensely.
(But its certainly not necessary.)

I loved this series! It was very true to the Books (The White Queen, The Red Queen, and the Kingmakers's Daughter) and used things from each of the books so you get the view point of each of the women portrayed in the books. The series was very true to the books and very true to historical fact. Richard III is portrayed in a much more sympathetic way than you may have come to know him, but there is serious debate about whether he was actually the person who was behind the murder of Elizabeth's boys (the Princes in the Tower), so I like the alternatives presented by both the books and this series. If you have not read the books and/or do not know this part of English history, then before watching this series you might want to look up Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville in Wikipedia, just to get a title background on who they were and their relationship to the kings and each other. It is the fascinating and too-little told story of what happened BEFORE Henry VIII!

This is really good and really involving. It doesn't hurt that the cast is superb, talented and REALLY good looking (especially the two leads). I got through to episode 6 or so and now I have to re-reserve it to finish it. Super good.

Wonderful Series. Great History, Acting, Costumes etc. Very Entertaining. I hope there is a Season 2 soon as they say on the internet that they are in the process of making one.

Too bad the men cast were not as good as most of the actresses. Ending was more than anticlimatic in any case.

I'm sure Edward 1V was King of England for the dates shown on catalogue entry. Edward V was his son; one of the princes murdered in the Tower of London.
