Is anyone watching Elizabeth on More4 - or has anyone seen it?

Fascinating, wonder how realistic it is? I mean how accurate??

Thanks any historians reading this!

I saw it when it first came out together with my a level history group. Cant remember the ins and outs but we werent impressed. The cross dressing frenchman - there were two brothers, but the film got the wrong one.

Oh thanks, wondered if the cross dressing was real.

And the poisoned dress??

Thanks redexpat.

Not historically accurate at all, esp timelines - but an entertaining film to watch.

There were many Catholic plots to kill Elizabeth, and a poisoned dress was one of them.
