Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
It's often said that truth is stranger than fiction, but this superb biography -- originally broadcast on the History Channel -- proves that it can be infinitely more fascinating as well. Hosted by bestselling historian David Starkey, Elizabeth explores the turbulent life and times of England's Virgin Queen by augmenting newly shot re-creations of famous events with artistic interpretations of Good Queen Bess, glimpses of British landmarks and period artifacts, and incisive passages quoted from historical records. Elizabeth's reign began in the late 16th century, with her beloved England threatened from both without and within. As this four-hour documentary demonstrates, she rose to these challenges, most notably building the Royal Navy into a world-renowned fighting force that defeated the Spanish Armada and presiding over a cultural renaissance distinguished by the rise of William Shakespeare. Starkey's commentary paints a vivid picture the Elizabethan era and also describes the private struggles of a queen whose legendary devotion to her people took a huge toll on her personal life. Exhaustively researched and imaginatively presented, Elizabeth is guaranteed to mesmerize even those viewers who are only vaguely familiar with the beloved monarch's reign. The handsome two-disc set also features a chronology of the English monarchy.

    Elizabeth, the Documentary

    This is a very interesting and insightful documentary on probably the most memorable English queen. This documentary humanizes Elizabeth but at the same time shows her strength as a queen and reflects how she was seen as a force to be reckoned with. Excellent viewing!

    Born and Raised on Shaky Grounds, Reigned and Died in Glory

    Elizabeth, a two-DVD set by The History Channel, will win the hearts and minds of a wide audience. On-location photography in the United Kingdom and Ireland, well-done reenactments, artwork, and the superb narration of historian David Starkey make it possible for viewers to get a better appreciation for Queen Elizabeth I and the impact of her reign on British, European, and world history. Starkey clearly explains how Elizabeth Tudor, daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, managed to become queen in 1558 C.E. through courage, cunning, and luck. Starkey also shows with conviction that unlike her cousin Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots, Elizabeth I, a Protestant, was an astute politician both domestically and overseas during her nearly 45-year rule. England became a major European power under Elizabeth I’s reign. Paradoxically, Mary Stewart, the figurehead of Catholicism, got the last word after her execution for high treason against Elizabeth I in 1587 C.E. Elizabeth I died heirless in 1603 C.E. Mary Stewart’s son, James VI of Scotland, became King of England and Scotland as James I after the death of Elizabeth I. To summarize, Elizabeth is a nice addition to the DVD library of any person fond of history.

    elder actress is distracting

    The first 2 discs were great. I put in the 3rd disc and the actress who plays the elder Elizabeth is distracting. It's like two different companies made discs 3 and 4. She looks horrendous and it is hard to focus on the story. I know it's a documentary, but at least hire actors who are similar to the biography.
