  1. Why watch THE WHITE QUEEN? Mostly my abiding soft spot for Ms. Rebecca Ferguson, with a side of Ms. Freya Mavor and a hash of Ms. Eleanor Tomlinson.

    Also, I have fond memories of watching this with my mother when it first came out (and Lady Margaret is generally entertaining, in a “Grand High Inquisitor” style).

  2. This sucks! Why are the richest people in the land re wearing the same old shit?!

    1. Amen!!! These people had HUGE wardrobes full of lavish costumes in the most precious fabrics – and we’ve got the inventories to prove it!

    2. It’s especially weird to me, considering that the show covers like 20-some years, so it makes no sense that they would be rewearing clothing from years earlier. Not at their level of wealth at least!

      1. My dear fellows, remember that a production may need to evoke such storied wealth without having the tiniest portion thereof with which to work – it also bears pointing out that, unlike those Naughty Tudors, the House of York don’t benefit from being able to tap into a verifiable cottage industry seeking to evoke them (and therefore cannot even borrow what they cannot afford to buy).

        Such are the indignities of working with the unfashionable periods of British history, I fear (Just ask Edmund Ironside, Saint Margaret of Scotland or Henry III, amongst others).

  3. As a widow Elizabeth should be wearing a barb, a sort of pleated wimple, and a hair covering headress, like the outfit Margaret Beaufort wears in her portraits.
