I feel that this series has been unfairly criticised. It was never marketed as a documentary, and doesn't claim to tell the factual story. One should enjoy it for what it is- a drama. And as far as drama based on history goes, it is actually quite a good one. Yes, elements of the plot are not factually correct, but then we should also remember that they are possibly not factually incorrect either, as with the series set in the 1400s it is impossible to know the whole concrete truth. Many aspects included in the books and series are things that may have been true. For example, while some dismiss the witchcraft storyline as ridiculous, it is fact that Elizabeth Woodville and her mother were accused of being witches. While it may not have been true that they practised 'witchcraft', I actually find it interesting that the series portrays the allegations as true.

The White queen is based on the 'cousins war' series by Philippa Gregory focusing on three woman caught up in the 'Wars of the Roses'. These women are Elizabeth Woodville the wife of King Edward IV, Margeret Beaufort the mother of Henry Tudor (who we know as Henry VII), and Anne Neville the wife of Richard III. Gregory's novels bring to light the lives of these women who were key players in the Wars of the Roses, although their war 'would not be won on the battlefield.'

The series begins with Edward IV meeting Elizabeth Woodville, and ends with Henry Tudor's victory at the Battle of Bosworth. This covers the power struggle between the house of York and house of Lancaster, as well as the mystery of the Princes in the tower, all this intertwined with the stories of relationships. Amanda Hale (Margeret Beaufort) and James Frain (Lord Warwick)stand out for me as the stars acting wise.

This was something my wife watched; it was a “woman’s” TV series based on a “woman’s” novel, or rather, sequence of novel. However, as a consequence of watching/taking an interest in Shakespeare’s History Plays, I decided to watch “The White Queen” on YouTube. Unfortunately, just when I had got as far as episode 8 (of 10), it was “pulled” and I had to order the box-set from Amazon, at, I may add, a very reasonable price!

Actually, I have no regrets; the series grew on me as it progressed and my wife is in the process of watching it again!

It is a fascinating story, to be sure, and while I cannot vouch for its 100% historical veracity, there is no denying that the three women who take centre stage were very remarkable ladies indeed and their story will have you hooked.

She received a lot of critical praise, but personally, I find Rebecca Ferguson in the title role a little glacial; the other two leading ladies, Amanda Hale as Margaret Beaufort and Faye Marsay as Anne Neville, are, however, little short of breath-taking.

It is, all in all, a very classy production and some of our finest actors (Janet McTeer, James Frain, Rupert Graves, Michael Maloney and Juliet Aubrey among them) shine in supporting roles, as does Aneurin Barnard as a handsome, not especially evil or deformed Richard III, a million miles away from Shakespeare’s creation.

This is not just a worthy historical adaptation, nor is just a “woman’s” programme, as I initially thought. It might occasionally fall somewhere in between these two stools, but it is a fine piece of television in its own right.

This 2013 costume drama uses the Wars of the Roses as it’s historical backdrop. The series actually focuses on three female characters with the first episode setting the overall scene. The year is 1464 and having been widowed and lost access to her Lancastrian husband's property Elizabeth Woodville is encouraged by her mother Jacquetta to make herself available to the younger Yorkist, Edward IV, but the path of love is not a smooth one.
Any historical drama covering such a long and complex period is bound to cause controversy. Like most costume dramas, it is foremost a drama, made to entertain, rather than educate. To get the most from this you need to go into it expecting a love story with an historical backdrop that [like La Reine Margot] takes ‘the what might have been’ and ‘rumours of the day’ and fashions them into a credible story. Thus accusations of witchcraft become accepted as the reality from the start, although the open talk of rebellion and witchery do rattle somewhat. These were handled far better in ‘By the Sword Divided’ and the story is less engrossing than ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ or ‘The Tudors’.
All 10 episodes are presented in this 4 disc set, which is held in an extra thick DVD case which inserts into a stout card sleeve. The first 3 of the four discs opens to trailers before the main menu offering play, scene selection and set up [2.0 default or 5.1, ] The volume is loud but 5.1 is a lot louder compared to most DVDs so beware. Disc 4 holds the final episode and bonus materials [making of, costumes and conversation with author].
