Thoroughly enjoying this,
This review is from: The White Queen [DVD] (DVD)
We are on episode 6 here next week, I am thoroughly enjoying this tv series. Although I am not from the UK, I have great interest in reading about English history. I have read a few factual history books so I know this series doesn't follow the history exactly to the letter but I believe this story works for a tv series and is adapted very well considering three books are combined to make a ten part tv series. I believe that the actors are all perfect in their roles and I don't agree with other reviewers comments about wooden acting etc. Also I see negative comments about sets being too clean, too nice etc again I don't agree. I think the setting is fabulous and I believe they shot The White Queen in Bruges. I am not a nit picker I am enjoying it for exactly what it is, history fluffed up a bit for tv. If it gets more people interested in history, I'm all for it. Watch it, make your own mind up. Personally. I am loving it.

I agree with your comments. I am enjoying watching this series and it has prompted some interest in the history of this period on my part. The majority of the actors seem to fit well into their respective parts, however I do somewhat agree with another review that Max Irons may be a little too young for the part of King Edward IV. That said, he is a good actor and I don't think him playing this role has negatively impacted the series in any way. I have found the storyline with Anne, Richard, Isabelle and George particularly interesting to watch and think the actors playing these roles have come across very well.

I did think that Max looked like a young boy playing 'king' in one scene when his crown was a bit lopsided on his head, ha but I could look past that!

Got to agree with everything you say. I live in Yorkshire and am seeing the local countryside in a whole new way now. Battle of Towton 1461 means something now when I pass through the village. It's all down to this series.
