The White Queen is 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.

Special Features: The Making of The White Queen, Series Overview, Book To Series, The History Behind The White Queen, The White Queen: Set Tour, Queen Elizabeth, The King, The Heir Apparent, Woman In A Man's World, Conjuring Up The Queen/Magic, Dressing The Queen/Wardrobe


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.

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.

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.

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).

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I enjoyed this TV series and found that the acting was great and the set superb. Okay, so there are a few historical inaccuracies with the costume etc., but not enough to divert from the overall enjoyment of the show. (Besides, part of the fun can always be spotting such inaccuracies, right?)
I found the series to be a much more tame version of "Game of Thrones"--less action, more talking. If that doesn't sound appealing to you then stay clear of it. Also, if blatant fiction being portrayed as fact will drive you around the twist then I advise you to stay clear of it also. To name but a few; Elizabeth Woodville and her mother are shown to be witches, Anne Neville is portrayed as a harsh and greedy harpy and Margaret Beaufort's piety is shown to such extremes that she comes across as entirely loony. Overall, very dramatized personas that, of course, make for good TV. (And historical fiction too for that matter, which you'll already be familiar with if you've ever read any of Gregory's novels). If you don't enjoy facts being bended in such a way then, again, this really isn't the show for you.
If however you can get past this and are one of those people who can actually watch a show without believing everything you see, then I do recommend the series for it's captivating characters and political intrigue. It's full of mystery and suspense, love and sex, not to mention the tense familial relations that lead to national disaster time and time again. It even has the "who-done-it" aspect of a murder mystery--it's really all in here.
I just hope that if you are not familiar with the War of the Roses/The Cousins War, or the various theories associated with the Princes in the Tower, that you will research them after you've watched the series, and not just take Gregory's word as gospel. Honestly, it's a very interesting period of British history so go investigate and enjoy!!!

No. a second or so - every other episode. Not the main focus. More 'romance' than just going at it.
