This 8 episode series is a sequel to “The White Queen” a 2013 BBC produced series that adapted 3 of writer Philippa Gregorys previous novels. This new series is based on the 2013 novel of the same name. The series will be based around the marriage of Elizabeth of York and Henry VII and the drama and stryfe that came with that union.
Part of the reason I noticed this series, and want to watch at least the first episode of it was the inclusion of actress Michelle Fairley(Catelyn Stark, Game of Thrones).It may be a bit of a rehash of a previous role of hers……but it was a damn fine role. Starz usually puts forward pretty good period pieces, and Spartacus will always be among one of my favourite period pieces of all time, so I think this deserves a watch.
There are two trailers below. One giving a lay out of the series and the other examines the family trees involved. Something I wished to god had been introduced at the beginning of Game of thrones.Enjoy
Series Premiere is Apr.16th, 2017
