I'd rather see one based on Sharon Kay Penman's books...

I haven't got Starz :-( . I hope it comes out somewhere else. I am constantly moaning about the fact that we get ten billion series based on the Tudors but none on the Plantagenets. Nothing against the Tudors, just that it'd be nice to see one about different people!

Weir is not a historian or a serious biographer IMO. I would not watch a show based on one of her books.

I heartily agree. The Tudors are not my favorite Dynasty but the Plantagenets certainly are!

One of my favourite biographies was Alison Weir's 'Eleanor Of Aquitaine: By the Wrath of God, Queen of England' I really hope this one is used.

I agree too regarding the Plantagenets!
