Starz is a big fan of period dramas with flair and plenty of sexual tension, and the subscription cable network’s recent collaboration with the BBC proved to be no exception. The White Queen gave us an exciting twist on the life and times of Elizabeth Woodville, who later became the queen consort to Edward IV, and on February 4 the series is headed onto Blu-ray and DVD, courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment. To celebrate the big release, we’re giving away one Blu-ray copy of The White Queen, along with a copy of The White Queen book.
The Blu-ray set comes with all 10 episodes of the cleverly taglined drama, which follows three politically motivated and powerful women during the War of the Roses. Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville each bring different motives and perspectives to the small screen, and if you want to learn more about the historical nature of the drama, you’ll be able to do so through the bonus features, which offer extras giving the series historical context, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the period drama. If you really want to get in-depth with the story, you’ll also nab a free copy of the book.
The set comes with a softcover copy of The White Queen, written by popular novelist Philippa Gregory. The White Queen is based on the first book of The Cousins War series, which also includes The Red Queen and The Kingmaker’s Daughter. It’s a dense read, but if you loved all of the details in The White Queen, you should find it pretty engaging. Plus, having some historical fiction on your bookshelf always adds a little character.
