The White Princess, the Drama channel, 9pm IF you like swishing period costumes, bloody battles and sword waving, you'll lap up this adaption of the Philippa Gregory novel, a sequel to The White Queen.

The saga begins in 1485, two days after King Richard III is brutally killed at the Battle of Bosworth.

Princess Elizabeth is mourning her lover, and none too impressed that she's betrothed to the new Tudor King Henry VII - who she's never met, and is by all accounts a nasty piece of work. She doesn't want to "be the wife of a marauding mad man".

Meanwhile, a paranoid Henry is busy rounding up all his traitors - of which there are a lot - and throwing them in the tower.

It's a tense start to this gritty Wars of the Roses drama, and you'll want to binge-watch the lot.
