News & Interviews for The Spanish Princess: Season 1
Arthur and Catherine wanted to bring Camelot back to England, and while we know historically that Catherine won't be able to achieve that halcyon desire in the Tudor court, The Spanish Princess wonderfully makes us want to follow her wherever she leads.
It's well cast, handsomely produced and based on novels by Philippa Gregory. Good popcorn-munching fun.
The Spanish Princess is the ideal period soap, dexterously and intelligently balancing the webby intrigue of 16th century court life with the dewy eroticism of a classic melodrama. There's no guilt here. Just pleasure.
Try as it might, it can't help slipping back into the story we already know, and although the result is still entertaining, it's also less original than I might've hoped.
It's an elegant and powerful tribute to a queen who's all too often been defined by the gluttony of her husband but whose influence changed the very fabric of England.
The Spanish Princess lacks a strong protagonist and manipulates historical facts in favor of an outlandish plot. [Full Review in Spanish]
It was a pleasure, despite all the wild inaccuracies, to see a period drama that took the time and attention to develop its Black female lead-that she was treated with respect, dignity, and grace by the writers.
This sexy, spellbinding follow-up to The White Queen and The White Princess finally gives the charismatic and cunning Catherine her due and provides some much-needed royal herstory.
The mark of a good historical drama is whether it has anything relevant to say to modern viewers, and this sensitive series has relevance in spades.
Audience Reviews for The Spanish Princess: Season 1
Mar 05, 2021This show isn't very historically accurate but that's ok because it doesn't pretend to be. It's entertaining with some great characters, particularly Margaret Beaufort and Maggie Pole. I've seen people complaining about the inclusion of Lena being pandering but she was based on a real person. In reality she was a personal slave of Catherine rather than her lady in waiting. Catherine was highly unlikeable unfortunately, very deceitful and selfish. Charlotte Hope can't do a very good Spanish accent either.
Jan 18, 2021I wanted to like this series. I love historical dramas. This one doesn't stick to history. I love Catherine of Aragon, and this isn't even close to doing her justice. I find Charlotte Hope's voice unpleasant, but her fake Spanish accent is intolerable. It's weird, and in no reality does it sound Spanish. I don't know what the casting director was thinking. I can't make it through season 2. I could give it three stars as a fictional period drama, if Charlotte Hope wasn't in it.
Dec 29, 2020The show would be amazing except for the bad acting of the star character, the queen. Her bad Spanish accent and over acting is annoying. Otherwise, the story lines, plotting and conniving are suspenseful, even for those that already know the history of Catherine, Queen of England. Because of the bad acting, I couldn't wait for end lol
Dec 22, 2020Terrible Pretends to be historically accurate but its pure fantasy.
Dec 04, 2020Seems like a big stretch to use the word historical to describe this. Opening seen, princess on the front lines of a battle field in a dress.... why not own up to what this is, put her in high heels and have her round kick all the moors out of Spain.
Nov 29, 2020The best drama show on tv why cancel it so soon Damn it !
Nov 20, 2020The series improves from one star to two in season two, but the accents in Season One are so bad they pull you away from the drama.
Nov 01, 2020Great cast, historically accurate, amazing costumes! It's a must see! Loved The Tudors as well, though few historical details are more accurate in The Spanish Princess!
May 19, 2019I saw the first 2 episodes and so far its dry and not very interesting. I will try a few more episodes to see if it gets better but as for now its really hard to stay awake during an episode, very slow and not very gripping.
May 10, 2019I really enjoyed it.I suggest watching it if you like romantic shows.I can tell it is going to be a long beautiful series.
