The White Queen Trailer


The 'sword and shield' television hype continues to grow as The White Queen celebrates its release on DVD and Blu-Ray on the 19th August 2013. 

The melodramatic television Drama based on the compelling, brutal and turbulent best-selling history novel The Cousins' War by Philippa Gregory portrays the perceptions of three passionate and equally ruthless women: Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville in their quest for power.

Set in the middle of the 15th Century, England is divided by war as The House of York and the House of Lancaster fiercely fight it out their dispute to who is the rightful king. After much dispute The House of York's young and handsome Edward is mischievously made King by Lord Warwick. All is well until Edward falls in love with Lancastrian Commoner Elizabeth Woodville, ruining Warwick's plan to control the throne. From here on it Elizabeth is put in a violent struggle where she must fight for her life and the crown to the throne. The story unravels and exposes a possible view one of the most interesting stories in British History.

Blood, Sex And Violence: The White Queen


Max Irons James Frain Rupert Graves Rebecca Ferguson Caroline Goodall Spartacus

The White Queen stars two relatively unknown actors, Rachel Ferguson and Max Irons, as Elizabeth Woodville and King Edward IV. They are supported by James Frain, Caroline Goodall, David Oakes, Rupert Graves, Amanda Hale and many, many, many more.

A decent historical drama is signposted by the presence of The Tudors' Frain, The Borgias' Oakes and Graves, who donned a wig in order to play George Villiers in a BBC adaptation of the life and loves of Charles II. It does take a certain type of actor to pull off the floppy haired-tights-codpiece- thigh high boots look. Fortunately this trio do. Max Irons does quite well too.

The programme is a dramatization of the life and times of Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV. From relatively humble beginnings we see the Lancastrian lass rise to the highest position a woman in medieval society could reach: Queen. Elizabeth was grandmother of Henry VIII, a monarch whose offspring has overshadowed historical drama. The series is based on Philippa Gregory's best-selling book of the same name.
