Cathy: This was an excellent "Masterpiece Theater" mini-series on the life of Elizabeth I, from the time of her imprisonment by Queen Mary to the end of her long reign. If you've already seen the Cate Blanchet movie on the same subject, this version is quite redundant, but very well-done and I would still recommend seeing it, especially if you enjoy history or costume dramas. Tom Hardy plays Robert Dudley, Elizabeth's childhood companion and love interest. He does an excellent job and has a wealth of screen-time. Dexter Fletcher plays a supporting role as the Earl of Sussex, one of Elizabeth's political advisors. The 3+ hour series remains interesting throughout and the time went by quickly.
