The White QueenThe White Queen, the popular Starz TV series based off Phillipa Gregory’s historical novel series The Cousins’ War comes to DVD and Blu-ray today with a bounty of awesome extra features. As many of you might recall, The White Queen was a BBC TV series that came to the US in August of last year on Starz. Of course, the US got the slightly sexier and unedited version, with more sex scenes and naughty royal fun that brought it up to the high expectations Americans have for premium channel TV series (think Game of Thrones or Spartacus). The 10-episode series was a vivid re-telling of the classic War of the Roses family feud set in 15th century England. Starting in 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, war had been ravaging throughout England over who the was rightful King. It was a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV becomes the crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker.” But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between Elizabeth, her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville, the pawn in her father’s power game – each woman vying for the crown. This witty and provocative show is filled with powerful females and intense drama.

The show stars Rebecca Ferguson as Elizabeth Woodville, Amanda Hale as Lady Margaret Beaufort, Faye Marsay as Lady Anne Neville, James Frain as Richard “the Kingmaker” Neville of Warwick, and Max Irons as Edward IV. And now, with the home video release, you can watch all of them in the 10-episode epic at home and at your leisure on either the high definition Blu-ray™ with Digital HD Ultraviolet for $59.99 or on DVD for just $49.98 MSRP.
