Quotes

Bothwell: There is a lack of time, Your Majesty, for you are soon to be married, which is why I must now humble myself before you, and others.
[Gets down on one knee]
Bothwell: I have come to ask for your hand in marriage. I am not the Dauphin of France, the heir apparent of Spain - I am not rich, or powerful, so you may ask, 'What would you bring to such a marriage?' To which I must reply, I would bring my heart.
Mary, Queen of Scots: Are you drunk, Bothwell?

Wasted promise
21 September 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

You'd think that combining a good director, excellent actors and fascinating

historical events would make for an entertaining miniseries -- but you'd be

wrong. The writing stank, the history was worse than inaccurate, and I can

barely believe excellent actors such as McKidd and Carlyle were able to deliver some of their lines with a straight face. Historical inaccuracies aside, the story itself was delivered so disjointedly it was downright choppy -- almost as if an entirely different director and writer made each half. Skip this one.
