Giving many people their first introduction to Rebecca Ferguson, The White Queen is an adaptation of the first books in Philippa Gregory's The Cousins' War series. It's a heavily fictionalised account of the life of Elizabeth Woodville, consort to King Edward VI, and her rivals and allies during the Wars of the Roses. With plenty of powerful female characters, it's just as dramatic, romantic, and over the top as you'd hope. A follow-up series, The White Princess, starring Killing Eve's Jodie Comer, is also available, and takes the action into the early Tudor period.
