Storyline

She was loved, she was a princess, heir to the throne - but the childhood fairytale turned to lifelong nightmare for Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's first child. When Henry divorced her mother and married Anne Boleyn, Mary became an outcast and a threat to the Protestant succession. By a twist of fate, on the death of her brother, she became queen at last in 1553, but her attempts to make England Catholic again were a disaster for her and the country. History has called her "Bloody Mary" for the burning of the Protestants, but how fair is this? This film paints another picture, of a woman true to her beliefs, pushed towards a terrible psychological disintegration. Written by Chris Barnard

Trivia

Production Timeline : Reported in English magazine and a local area newspaper as requested actors/extra's to cast within scenes recorded at Eltham Palace, upon August 18th 2005. A location used for better historical architectural accuracy, as within her birth region of Greenwich. Most likely that 'Mary Tudor', had visited Eltham Palace possibly when still travelled with the royal court of Henry VIII or briefly when his heir Edward succeeded him. See more »

Badly acted. Disjointed format. Absolutely ghastly and overbearing music.
