Storyline

Adapted from Philippa Gregory's best-selling novel and part of The Cousins' War book series, The White Princess sees England ostensibly united by the marriage of Elizabeth of York and King Henry VII, but their personal and political rift runs deep and the war that rages between them threatens to tear the kingdom apart once again.

Not bad, but ultimately unsatisfying
20 May 2017 | by sc_mackinnonSee all my reviews

Miniseries like these just chap my hide. They take a fascinating subject and period ---and then proceed to take pointless, unnecessary liberties with it. This is not historically accurate. The acting isn't bad, but the plot and progression get a bit choppy.

This is little more than a medieval soap opera. Henry VII was a helluva character in real life - -why spoil it? This miniseries fails to address his good works, as well as his fall into corruption and detachment as his reign went on.

If you're into old Dynasty or Dallas style shows, this is for you. But if you're a history buff like me, skip it, unless it's a really rainy day and you're looking to kill time.
