Becoming Elizabeth Episode 4 – Becoming Mary?
Posted By Claire on July 4, 2022
This week’s episode of Becoming Elizabeth, Lighten our Darkness, had us thinking that Elizabeth might just be pregnant, saw the end of Queen Catherine Parr, and should, I feel, have been called Becoming Mary.
Let me share with you the history behind this week’s episode and my views on how things played out, as we say goodbye to Catherine Parr, see Elizabeth becoming independent and a new Elizabeth, and watch Mary reacting to the violence aimed at her beloved church, a violence caused by her own half-brother Edward IV’s religious policies. Oh, and I point out a Tudor character who is sadly missing from the series.
