Wolves1014 - It was good
I'm big fan of Historical dramas. It kept your attention.
JB_Shorty85 - Seriously LOVE this series!!
First of all I love period pieces that are factually based and really well done and The White Queen is no exception!! Being a limited series made for TV I expected it to be low budget and on the cheesy side but I was SO happy that I was wrong! Not only does it not look low budget, but the most important thing is that it is incredibly well acted and the casting is really well done. I was very pleasantly surprised with the performance quality of the main cast, this series really does have great acting in my opinion. Not only is the acting fantastic, but the chemistry between Elizabeth (Rebecca Ferguson) and Edward IV (Max Irons) truly is exceptional, the viewer is transported to another time and can really feel the immense amount of love these two had for one another. These two actors really are fantastic, both together and singularly, and I honestly would love to see them paired up again in a future project! There are two more series that continue the story line (The White Princess and The Spanish Princess) but this, in my opinion, is by far the best of the bunch in terms of acting and chemistry. If you like period pieces, especially ones based on real events and fantastically acted, then this series is a definite MUST SEE!!!
reybako - Amazing Historical Series
Amazing series on the power behind kings. The power of women. I have always been interested on the history of England. This is a great summary on what comes before the Tudors. The war of the roses between the Yorks and Lancasters. What a paradox that Margaret Beaufort - an extremely devoted Catholic- brings with the power of prayer the Tudors to the throne who later expel the Catholic Church of England to establish the Church of Anne Boleyn.
@forevershante - It was okay
The series was okay. Nothing to write home about. I give it a C -
selena fan123 - Not gonna lie
I enjoyed this series very much, but was very happy to hear that it is continuing. Not gonna lie, less than thrilled that from what I've read EVERYONE of the main characters have been recast. Children, of course, they grow up, but the other characters? What for, and whose less than brilliant idea was that ?? Don't know whether I'll be bothering with this.
Scoop881 - Beautifully done
A beautiful show, well acted, that perfectly integrates history with cinematic art.
laurakristina - Fantastic
Great history drama !!!
RCCARS69 - low qualitiy
From the Acting to the unbielvable get married after talking to a lady with kids 2 yah right, everything is rushed kinda entertaining if you can look past the noticable flaws.
Mightynallely - AMAZING SHOW! Best ever
Loved the show can't get enough bought the series, and unexpected ending ; recommend it! ❤️
lalalyme - SEQUEL PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
The only reason I subscribed to Starz, besides Black Sails.
travelbug011484 - Addictive!
I enjoyed HBO's "The Tudor's" very much, and decided to try "The White Queen", which I had heard very little about. I have to admit, I was hooked from the first episode! It has all the elements of engaging drama I love-romance, intrigue, duplicity, and epic battle scenes! Is this completely historically accurate? Um, no. If I want that, I'll go to The History Channel.
This delectable series is for those of you out there who want to just escape for a time and be thoroughly entertained! Enjoy!
Julia Gulia Mulia - Afterthought.
This is the emotional paradox that those who have a memory, even a'ittle-badder than normal memory, face who read novels of which are then converted into tv/movie:
Staying true to the novel = Basically you have
just presented an afterthought of a story.
Veering away from the novel = Everybody and their mother wants to beat you in for 'ruining!' the entire world by presenting a forethought that Tried to trump the great author's work, how dare you attempt to destroy the world; At least that world that words brought life to within their minds from the book.
Changing 'a few things' from the novel:
People emote wildly, argue, then go on iTunes and write a 'meh' review that says that, basically, you nearly destroyed the entire world, but thankfully, you only did nearly everything wrong, so it...was OK. Unforgivable. It was fine.
The key is.....likely to construct your own story for this tv show but contructed with the show 'inspired by the Phillipa Gregory novels'.
In my mind, everybody in the novel was a supermodel, so naturally, I wanted to see in this tv show everyone, men included, as a size zero-zero. So now, Im unhappy.
The lines from the book? Remember how...nice they were in your head while you read the novel?
Prepare to hear a not-doublezero-supermodel novel-cookiecutter character recite them again. Word for word. And the casting for this show Did do a cookiecutter's novel description-based boringly good job. ....yay.
I actually guess/skimmed two episodes and was thinking: [no spoilers]
'Ok, now he is going to get mad and say 'Bleh, I hate you' and now she is going to go in the ferry, yup, okay now..they all die, but I wish that guy would die instead-he needs a makeover And he has a layer of fat that should be muscle, wait...is it muscle?-but they die..likely in the next ten minutes?...oh good! A war! They did die in the last ten minutes, now...Oh! You know what, inner self? I can just skip this entire episode! And this episode! And this episode! Why doesnt anyone here have any eyeliner on?'
Good thing I never read the ending of the novel.
Watch it if you DIDNT read the novel ONLY.
Or if you did read the novel and you are curious and on an airplane or are ill.
Esme101!? - Top 5 of starz
It's was really good a diffrent show you commonly don't see along the lines of game of thrones parts ae boring but if you keep watching it keeps getting better and better
Rdubesq - Sloppy, rushed and frankly kinda boring
The setup is great and the start really grabs you ( IF you can ignore the poor production value...you may find yourself wondering exactly how many apparent weeks Elizabeth will be in the same dress.....a dress that has zippers!....with rubber soled boots!.....while she holds on to metal handrails!.....all in the Middle Ages!)
Unfortunately with each episode the plot jumps accelerated and everything seemed to be more and more on fast forward.....like watching a show with your skip ahead feature every 2 minutes. They tried to cram way too much into too few episodes and the end result was sloppy, rushed, and frankly boring.
FinalFiveWanabee - It was OK
Basically entertaining, but as others have said a TV miniseries can't capture the strength of Philippa Gregory's series which was to tell the same stories from such different perspectives.
kittalee - It was good.
The story kept me entertained however they left lot out of the books since they based this one season is based on 3 book with different perspectives. I would really like them to make the white princess since that would lead up to the tudors and i would like them to do a elizabeth tudor series.

Victarionk - Anyone who loves period dramas needs to check this out!
I thought the Tudor dynasty was dramatic...the Plantagenets did not mess around! (Saw a lot of docs after this) I watched The White Princess first in 2017 & was invested instantly. The White Queen is much, much better!! After 2yrs I’m finally here buying & reviewing. I can now add this to my collection alongside Elizabeth I and TWP.
Corbertha - Amazing
If you love The Tudors you'll absolutely enjoy the white queen. The books and stories come to life and I enjoy every single minute. I wish there were more of these.
Squigglefrie - Excellent
I binged on this over 3 days. Time well spent.
Misty1958 - Loved it
This is a great series
unicorn farm - Love it
This is a great series, great for learning about the cousins war.
