Reign

Synopsis:

Mary, Queen of Scots, faces political and sexual intrigue in the treacherous world of the French court. Chronicles the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (Kane) when she arrives in France as a 15-year-old, betrothed to Prince Francis, and with her four best friends as ladies-in-waiting.

This series is based ever-so-loosely on the life of Mary Stuart, aka Queen of Scots, but it isn’t exactly what you’d call historically accurate (if at all!). They did take a lot of creative liberties but none the less the series was hit with me, making this more like a medieval version of some high school drama.
I loved the outfits, even if they are not an accurate likeness of what would have been worn. The only thing I didn’t like was the distinct lack of British actor. but hey they were all good and played their parts brilliantly.

Ricky Gervais is like marmite you either love him or hate him – he has a deadpan sense of humour which actually appeals to me.
This series did have me in tears a few times as I just kept thinking about my dad.
