Elizabeth I: Death of a Dynasty

Series 1



The drama-documentary examines the Tudor queen's rousing speech at Tilbury as the Spanish Armada approached, her decline into old age, and one of her final foes, the Earl of Essex. A shameless flatterer, he becomes a highly prized courtier, but after a catastrophic falling out, he leads a rebellion against her. Lily Cole stars.
