    Well produced and entertaining. I was very impressed by the cast

    Well produced and entertaining. I was very impressed by the casting of this series, particularly James Maxwell as Henry VII and Norma West as Elizabeth of York. The acting was amazing and project had an authentically medieval feel. This is a very interesting look at an exciting and relatively under explored period of British history, the founding of the House of Tudor, following the War of the Roses. I highly recommend this program to history buffs.
