Review

Based on Philippa Gregory's series of best-selling novels, "The Cousins War.”

Set against the backdrop of England's Wars of the Roses during the 15th century, the story revolves around women caught up in the ongoing conflict for the throne. They are some of the most ruthless players in history and will stop at nothing to support their own causes and those of the ones they love. “The White Queen” will be told through the stories of three equally driven women -- Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville -- in their quest for power as they manipulate behind the scenes of history.

Series to premiere on Starz August 10, 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars the white queen August 10, 2013
Format:DVD
there is a way to watch bbc as it plays in England, and so i have seen parts 1-8. two more to go. i have not been this pleased by a docu drama in a long time, and this one is right up there with the tudors. the writer is a history teacher at one of the prestigious colleges in uk, and she writes with passion and accuracy. its about the cousins war, or war of the roses. The writer concentrates not on the men involved but the 3 women behind the scene. The costumes are documented, and the buildings are historical. the women are powerful, clever, driven, and with elizabeth, in love. its about protecting their right to the throne, and they do it vengeance and devotion to their cause and families. it is rich in colour, and i was wishing there was 15 parts, not 10! if you liked the tudors, you will love this, minus some of the fun but sometimes brutal sex scenes. there were a couple but tastefully done, the concentration being on family pride.
enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder, Intrigue and Scandal, OH MY! August 24, 2013
By HLR
Format:DVD
Being an novice student of British history, I am always eager when any new show comes out relating to this topic. While this is historical fiction it does follow history quite accurately. The casting is phenomenal! I will address some of the characters that really stood out for me. I am NO authority these are just my opinions! :-)

Rebecca Ferguson portrays a brave and beautiful Queen Elizabeth. Her performance is commanding and powerful. She really portrays the strength and courage of her character during a very dangerous time in British history.

Amanda Hale presents viewers with a pious and scheming Lady Beaufort. She does an excellent job of conveying her love for God and her son while showing the ugly side of greed and bad behavior.

Aneurin Barnard plays Richard Duke of Gloucester. His character evolves from one that seems sweet and caring as the Duke however, when he becomes King Richard we see him transform into power hungry and vile creature.

Max Irons as King Edward....I'm not sure about the casting with this actor. While he does a good job acting, I don't feel that he physically fits the part. Don't get me wrong he is very handsome he just doesn't fit the appearance of a King during the 1400's. The portrayal of King Edward is one of a womanizer (which he was) but his real character was much richer than this. I would have liked to see this developed more in the script.

David Oakes as George Duke of Clarence....PERFECT casting! I can't see any other actor doing a better job! He plays the jealous, conniving, backstabbing younger brother of King Edward with such conviction.

Janet McTeer as Jacquetta Woodville mother to Queen Elizabeth.

4.0 out of 5 stars "You Will Be Queen of England, as I Once Was..." December 4, 2013
Format:DVD
Forget historical accuracy. Done that? Good, because "The White Queen" has very little, even less so than the books by Philippa Gregory upon which they are based. The sooner you accept that, the more you can enjoy a mini-series that doesn't claim to be anything but a loose dramatization of the War of the Roses, starting from 1464 with the meeting of King Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, and ending with the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.

The time was ripe for a dramatization of the War of the Roses given the immense popularity of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones and the subsequent HBO television adaptation, for the author has made no secret of how much this period of English history inspired his own work of fiction. In fact, for fans of the books, it's hard not to watch "The White Queen" without drawing correlations between the two: Henry Tudor's situation is very much like that of Daenerys Targaryen, whilst Robert Baratheon seems to owe his existence to King Edward IV. Cersei Lannister might well be a less-than-kind depiction of the titular White Queen, and even the emblem of the famous rose sigils of Lancaster and York can be found in the fictional Tyrells' standard. It stands to reason that if you enjoy one, you'll enjoy the other.

But what "The White Queen" brings to the table is an emphasis on the women that were involved in the period, namely Elizabeth Woodville (wife of King Edward), Anne Neville (daughter of the man known as "the kingmaker") and Margaret Beauford (mother of Henry Tudor).

5.0 out of 5 stars The White Queen August 19, 2013
By debra
Format:Blu-ray
Before I saw this series, I did not know what The White Queen was about. I saw a trailer for it on TV and found that it was to be a TV series based on Philippa Gregory's novel of the same name. I knew of her work from the movie version of her novel The Other Boleyn Girl (a very inaccurate take on Tudor history), but have not as of yet read any of her novels based roughly upon between 15-1600's on the Tudor's and so fourth. I love Tudor history and more than that I love anything on the British Monarchy. I know a lot on Henry VIII and his wives as well as Queen Elizabeth I, but I did not have any knowledge onto the Plantagenet's or anything about the War of the Roses. So I jumped on this series and immediately began to watch it hoping it to be better than the Showtime series The Tudors.

I have to say at first I wasn't sure I thought though while the story seemed to be intriguing, I wasn't falling for the main characters like King Edward and his wife Elizabeth in the first episode, but by the second and third episode of the series I was completely hooked. I know there are a lot of reviews from critics saying the series didn't hold up to the standards they expected, but I think a lot of that was based on the first episode alone in the series and not the story all together as a whole.

I never realized how fascinating the War of the Roses was or what it was about. I think what makes this story so much more compelling to me versus other shows around the time period like The Tudors, is that it is told in the view of the woman who stood behind the throne and who shaped England's history dramatically without the world even realizing their importance to what was happening on the throne and how they could influence it. Unlike in The Tudors where it was more of a mans view on the world.
