Storyline

The House of York's young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick "The Kingmaker."

Trivia

In an astounding coincidence, Emma Frost, the writer of "The White Queen" BBC series, shares her name with a famous Marvel Comics "X-men" character, "Emma Frost, the White Queen," a member of the mutant clans. Yet this show, based on 16th-century historical personages, is in no way related to Marvel Comics or the mutants. See more »

Goofs

In various scenes, Henry Stafford(Michael Maloney) is seen with English Pointer dogs. This particular breed didn't exist during the 15th century. The English Pointer breed was created during the early/mid 17th century, mixing various mastiff breeds (including the "great Dane") and the Spanish "perdiguero". See more »

An excellent melodrama that improves with each installment
11 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you are of the disposition to enjoy extravagant production values, a handsome cast and plots compromised of devious political maneuvering, then it will be easy to appreciate BBC One's epic saga The White Queen for the rollicking good drama that it is. If, however, you are a narc for period accuracy, it's probably best to stick to the history channel.

Adapted from the best selling novel series The Cousins' War by Philippa Gregory, the show is set during the War Of The Roses, a conflict between the House of York and The House of Lancaster for the throne of England.

The subtext of the series revolves around the plight of medieval women, a fate fraught with perils equal to anything that their male counterparts faced on the battlefield. It's an oppressive, violent and often soul destroying existence from which not even the nobles from which the series draws it's focus are spared. In this way the The White Queen surprisingly possesses quite an insular focus despite the scope of the events that play out around the main characters. Interpersonal dynamics and the quest for personal power are the main factors that propel the narrative.

The pilot episode has actually been the weakest thus far, mainly serving the purpose of character introductions and setting the foundation of the central romance between Elizabeth Woodville and King Edward IV. This is not say that it is without merit, as the episode acts as an intriguing appetizer of promised delights to come. Initial patience is soon rewarded as the subsequent installments have upped the anti ten fold. Admittedly creative license has been taken in regards to a number of events, but there is no denying that The White Queen is thrilling melodrama nevertheless.
