The White Queen BBC series

I've just watched the final episode of The White Queen. I liked the series, though the BBC obviously didn't have enough funds to do the story justice. The battles were unrealistic with very small numbers and there were a few more inaccuracies than acceptable even in a tv series based on novels. Particularly showing Henry Tudor fighting at Bosworth when he stayed protected at the rear of the battle.  Many characters were not included, notably Richard's close friend Francis Lovell.  I think Aneurin Barnard was excellent as Richard III and the actresses who played the Neville sisters were the next best. It was unusual to see Anne Neville played as a strong ambitious woman rather than the mild and sickly one of history.  Rupert Graves was as usual very good in the role of Stanley, the traitor! I don't think rusty_armour would care much for his close-cut hair and his tatty beard!

I hope it hits the big screen in South Africa. I think you'd really enjoy it. :-)

Thanks for the excellent tips! :-D I'll definitely try what you've suggested outside of peak hours. I think I probably ran into problems because I wasn't using those steps.
