Adequate, but no depth
28 May 2019 | by peterri-17298See all my reviews

Elizabeth I is a fascinating subject; this docu-drama barely touched the tip of the iceberg. Her life just can't be documented in this 3 hour time allotment. If you want to see the best to date drama, watch the 1971 version with Glenda Jackson. It ran over 7 hours, and included so much more of Elizabeth's life.

I really wish we could somehow combine Cate Blanchett with Glenda Jackson's portrayal; Cate as the younger, Glenda as the older, while using the more accurate 1971 script.
