Addendum:  I suppose TWQ when it was on TV (I watched about ten minutes of it) did provide work for some members of the acting profession for a while.  TWQ having been one of those programmes where it is much more fun to read the reviews than to watch the actual show, one critic observed that Rebecca - not the singer - Ferguson was attractive and that "even pretty girls have to eat".  I suppose it's true that not every actress can secure a gig playing Hedda Gabler every week.

The Australian site Nerdalicious is announcing that a sequel to TWQ is being made - though this time the Beeb is distancing itself and not getting involved thank goodness http://nerdalicious.com.au/filmtv/philippa-gregorys-white-queen-gets-american-sequel/

After my post yesterday, in the afternoon I went to the launderette and read one of  the magazines lying around.  I may have made a remark above about Rebecca - not the singer - Ferguson not playing Hedda Gabler every week but actually she seems to be doing pretty well for herself because she has a part in the latest Mission Impossible film - and not a blink and you'll miss her part either.  I am probably as likely to watch Mission Impossible as I am TWQ part 2 but MI is very popular.

I recently found a video by Claire Ridgeway (of the Tudor Society) about the accuracy of "The Other Boleyn Girl".  It's not a hatchet job on PG - just a logical explanation of what is fact and what is fiction.  It's 50 minutes long though.  https://youtu.be/lM2DXvRYqb8
