The ladies dig into period drama The Spanish Princess, discussing everything from the real life of Queen Catherine of Aragon to Philippa Gregory's novels and cable network Starz's track record of female-focused historical dramas.
Lacy's love of British TV is embarrassingly extensive, but primarily centers around evangelizing all things Doctor Who, and watching as many period dramas as possible.
Digital media type by day, she also has a fairly useless degree in British medieval literature, and dearly loves to talk about dream poetry, liminality and the medieval religious vision. (Sadly, that opportunity presents itself very infrequently.) York apologist, Ninth Doctor enthusiast and unabashed Ravenclaw. Say hi on Twitter at @LacyMB.

Though Starz period drama The Spanish Princessstretches the truth a bit about Catherine of Aragon's historical role in the Battle of Flodden, that in no way diminishes the impact - or importance - of the story the show is trying to tell.
