The BBC’s answer to Game of Thrones has no need for dragons: set in 1464, this ten-part adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s account of the Wars of the Roses features enough historical intrigue and fire-breathing drama without resorting to fantasy (though a little old-fashioned witchcraft always livens things up).

Shot on location in Belgium, the film's sets, costumes and makeup are lavish (if, like the characters’ teeth and nails, perhaps a little too good to be true). As a historical account, The White Queen would be at home in Downton Abbey; its compelling story is more concerned with the sweep of history than the detail.

The ‘Kings and Queens’ school of history may have fallen out of fashion in the classroom, but retelling the Wars of the Roses from the perspective of the women involved brings fresh interest to the subject, and this big budget series strikes an engrossing balance between soap opera and epic saga.

This 4 disc set contains all 10 episodes and is available for just £29.99 with free P&P, saving £10 on the RRP
