Stunning to watch and really interesting to watch
7 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am no historian admittedly, but I do have an interest in the Tudors. I saw both this and The Six Wives of Henry the VIII, both presented by David Starkey and really liked them both. If I had a preference, I slightly prefer this but both were really interesting and well presented. The pacing is not the best there is, but it is never boring. Elizabeth is quite frankly wonderfully presented by Starkey, while the production values(costumes, photography, locations) are top drawer and the music is gorgeous. Elizabeth also benefits from being splendidly written, and the dramatisation is fine with Elizabeth particularly well done in what I consider a fairly demanding role in some respects. Overall, really well done and interesting. 9/10 Bethany Cox
