Sadly it's a mini series and only has 10 episodes, i think that they feel the need to rush it up or something.

I thought that the series was mainly focus on Elizabeth, didn't think much about the other two TBH. But the Red Queen does interest me, i think that they will probably cut out parts from the book on the series. I agree that it was a mistake to make it into a mini series in the first place

The magic element is actually one part that is quite historically accurate; both Elizabeth Woodville and her mother, Jaquetta of Luxembourg, were reputed to practice witchcraft.

Jaquetta was even brought to trial for it at one point (though was cleared).

I'd say that review sums it up quite well.
Episode 4 was hard to follow, it incorporated chewing-the-scenery melodrama and high camp, although on the plus side the tension at times of danger was ominous and palpable. The series is too complex to be a romp, but watchable nonetheless.

Yes I agree it was hard to follow,even though I've started to re-read a biography of Elizabeth Woodville to help fill in some of the blanks.

The series has begun to grow on me. The spin -off documentaries ( see link above) really helps although the latest episode contained spoilers for those of us who aren't too familiar with what happened to some individuals.

I must admit the series has improved and picked up a bit after a shaky few episodes,plus we got a battle at long last!

I'm completely gripped. As drama it is extremely good & very tense. The sense of claustrophobia, and backbiting amongst the women of the court is tangible, and it is beautifully shot.
Some things really grate tho', such as the 17th century chairs , {which i notice because i'm a history of furniture specialist}. Other people won't notice or mind !

All in all its a lovely bit of escapism for Sunday night !

So far, my favourite character in the series is Margareth Beaufort.
Amanda Hale is doing an awesome job. Amazing woman!

I don't know about anyone else but the actress who plays Lady Margaret Beaufort reminds me of Alanis Morissette.

I hadn´t thought about it, but you´re right!

One thing which has struck me as odd is the lack of any high ranking clergy at the Court,no Archbishop of York or Bishop of Lincoln both of whom were Lord Chancellors under Edward IV.

The lack of head dresses on the the Neville sisters and Lady Margaret Beaufort are also out of place.

Anne Neville and her mother in law could easily give Catherine de Médicis a run for her money

I keep seeing her in Victorian dress, when she plays the wife on Ripper Street!

Only 2 more episodes left,hard to believe as so much has happened (and didn't happen),overall its been disappointing. I've never read any of the Philippa Gregory novels and this series will not spur me to run out and buy them.

I wonder if they'll continue filming with The Red Queen, The White Princess, etc.
