"The White Queen" Episode One Picpam  

I feel like there's been so many various things I've wanted to write about, but I never have the words or motivation — so I am drawn to pictures instead, especially with Tumblr. (You can find me here at heatherfield.tumblr.com.)

So it seemed a natural move to express my excitement for the new series The White Queen (BBC and Starz) in picspam form!

Of course, I am still a writer at heart, and this whole "find" has a backstory:

A week or two ago I stumbled across the novel "The Founding" by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. The attractive historical cover proved to contain an interesting story based on the Wars of the Roses, and for the first time since I can remember, I was enthralled with a book and read its 500 pages in a week. A week!

I don't know why, but I've been intrigued by the time period, so I couldn't believe my luck when at the exact same time, "The White Queen" began. I'm hooked! I'm even reading the books, though I haven't been tempted by Philippa Gregory's stories 'til now.

Anyway, I might give more of a review of these various books, and this new show, but for now I think I'll leave you with these lovely pictures.

Oh, and a question — What do you guys think?

  • Comment if you like!
  • Do not use these caps for any graphics. I spent a lot of time fixing them up!
  • Do not hotlink.
  • Do not alter or repost any of these as your own.
  • Note that credit/resources can be found here.
    And enjoy!

    I haven't had a chance to see The White Queen yet. I was on holiday when it started and I haven't caught up yet! But it is on my to-do list, ASAP.

    I hope it is okay if I follow you on tumblr! I am cartoon-heart.

    Ooh, it is quite good! I'm really enjoying it, anyway — enough that I've been refreshing my friends list for the next episode, haha.

    Yes I'm so glad you're following me! I've followed you back! And now I know who you are. ;)

    Heather! It's always so good to hear from you. :) Your Tumblr is exquisite - thanks for linking to it. I had to oooh and ahhh over a lot of the photos you posted. :D

    Thanks for recommending The Founding! I was so intrigued by the premise that I had to download it to my Kindle! Maybe we can chat about it when I've finished?

    Those White Queen caps are gorgeous! I can't wait to see the program. Max Irons is soooo handsome. Swoon. :)

    *hugs* Take care!!

    Aw thanks for the comment! I can't take credit for any of the photos myself, but perhaps there's something to say for collating the images. ;)

    I have to admit I'm drawn to Tumblr more and more for all the pictures, both of general home decor, design, fashion, travel, as well as the lovely fandom graphics.

    I do have some ideas to blog about here, though, too! Life is starting to shift for me, I think.

    I do hope you enjoy "The Founding"! I've got the next book in the series but I'm reading Philippa Gregory's "The Cousins' War" series to stay in the Wars of the Roses era before I proceed to Henry VIII. ;) I'd love to hear what you think of the Founding! It's much better than Philippa Gregory's "The Red Queen" in my opinion.

    Have you any interest in the fifteenth century? I didn't know much about the Wars at all until "The Founding" so it was an excellent way to learn. (Though the pictures from "The White Queen" show might help you keep track of everyone. I already feel like I could reread "The Founding" and get so much more out of it, haha.)
