Critic Consensus: Though it sometimes suffers from clunky storytelling, The White Queen still delivers sufficient intrigue, thanks to its gorgeous costumes, splendid cast, and sexy, soapy plots.

If it had less magic, the miniseries might really have cast a spell.
The White Queen is gauzier than The Tudors, and it contains more overacting; but it scratches the same itch.
Its success is due largely to the costumes, set dressing, and comeliness of the two leads.
As a love story set in an impossibly chivalrous past, this was deliciously enjoyable. The conflict between the houses of Lancaster and York ceased to matter -- the crucial conflict was between Innocence and Experience.
