When Elizabeth Tudor comes to the throne, her (male) advisers know she has to marry. Doesn't she? Thus starts a decades-long political/ matrimonial game, during an age of high passions and high achievement.
Not even five minutes into this film, I stopped watching. Historically inaccurate portrayals do not inspire desire in me to watch more. Catherine of Aragon had reddis/blonde hair hair from an English ancestress, she may have been a Spanish princess but no black hair. Also long hair was part of being a virgin bride/princess. She would NOT have a shoulder lenth bob. If If the producers, director, etc, can't get this right, what other things are wrong? For shame BBC, I expected better.
