New docu-drama about Queen Elizabeth I

New docu-drama about Queen Elizabeth I from Channel 5 - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk

A new docu-drama about Queen Elizabeth I will contrast the monarch's point of view with those of her enemies, Channel 5 has announced.

The three-part history series Elizabeth I will feature duelling narratives as well as dramatic reconstructions in which three different actors will play the Tudor monarch at different stages in her life, from a young princess to a newly-crowned Queen and an ageing survivor.


As much it sounds interesting, I really am tired of movies, tv shows etc about the same people (you know who I mean: Tudors, Victoria, George VI, Edward and Wallis, even Elizabeth II).

Yes, I agree. I think Henry VIII and Elizabeth I in particular have been done to death on the small screen, along with Queen Victoria.

Agree about the tudors..& Q Vic...
but I woudn't want to see anyting about the Georges, an awful bunch. However I think that in a way we DONT see enough about the Queen. A good drama about her life, frank and honestly written would be great but mabye not til she passes on...

I'd actually like to see more of the Stuarts on the big (or small) screen. Perhaps Charles I and the events leading to his execution, or James II being overthrown by his nephew and son-in-law, William of Orange.
