I'm currently enjoying watching The Virgin Queen
on the BBC on sunday evenings. Starring Anne-Marie Duff
, who previously starred in Channels 4's wonderful show 'Shameless
Here's some more information on the series and ofcourse Elizabeth I of England herself, both from Wikipedia.
I also wanted to mention the wonderfully fitting soundtrack, which was made in collaboration with the Mediaeval Baebes. One of the recurring songs is based on the Dies Irae hymn.
Update: you can get both the DVD and the soundtrack from Amazon.co.uk.
