The White Queen – previews, pictures, reviews, everything you need to know about this big-budget BBC drama on Wars of the Roses, based on Philippa Gregory’s best-selling book. When York King Edward meets and falls in love with Lancastrian commoner Elizabeth Woodville, he does the unlikely, and makes her his Queen, much to the disgust of his powerful Kingmaker, the Earl of Warwick. This union kick-starts jealousies, passions, battles, marriages and wars as the Houses of York and Lancaster both prepare to fight to the death for the British throne. While Warwick searches for a stronger alliance to keep his strong place at court, and is happy to marry his daughters off in the process, Elizabeth and her mother are forced to use witchcraft to protect themselves. Meanwhile, a young Henry Tudor grows up, his destiny secured by protective mother Margaret Hale. This is a 10-episode drama, starring James Frain, Janet McTeer, Max Irons and Rebecca Ferguson.
