The White QueenPhilippa Gregory‘s best-selling novels come to the screen in the Starz mini-series The White Queen.

The story looks at the classic tale of the War of the Roses, the feud between the York and Lancaster families for the throne of England, from the viewpoint of the women: Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Woodville, Vi), Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale, TVs Ripper Street) and Anne Neville (Faye Marsay, Is That It?). They each scheme, seduce and manipulate their way to power.

The White Queen begins in 1464. The House of York’s Edward IV (Max Irons, The Host) is crowned King of England with the help of master manipulator Lord Warwick (James Frain, The Lone Ranger). But when Edward falls for the Lancastrian commoner Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne crashes. Meanwhile, a violent, high-stakes struggle opens between Elizabeth and her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville, a pawn in her father’s power game.

Janet McTeer (The Woman in Black) and Rupert Graves (TV’s Sherlock) also star in the miniseries, which comes packed with extras on DVD and Blu-ray. Here’s the list of special features:
