Princes in the Tower (2005)
Gripping entertainment and a great WHAT IF story
This Channel 4 docu-drama from the UK has good production values and a decent cast, although not household names. Costumes and sets are convincing and you find yourself easily carried away with the story. The story, without any spoilers, is that of England around the time of the War of the Roses, where the Houses of York and Lancaster are fighting for control of the throne. Lancaster is in power and as far as everyone knows there is no Yorkist pretender to the throne. Richard III has had his nephews murdered in the Tower of London or so we think. But.... then along comes a claimant to the throne, who says he is one of the missing Princes. This is based on a factual story but the twists will surprise you. All in all excellent viewing, and well worth a DVD-release.
