Masterpiece Theatre to Present "The Virgin Queen"

Anne-Marie Duff stars as Elizabeth I of England in this new depiction of the life of The Virgin Queen. The program is part of the Masterpiece Theatre series.

The website states:

"Paula Milne's powerful script about the long and eventful life of England's iconic Queen was filmed against a backdrop of some of Great Britain's most beautiful houses and landscapes. The Virgin Queen explores the full sweep of Elizabeth's life: from her days of fear as a potential victim of her sister's terror, through her great love affair with Robert Dudley, into her years of triumph over the Spanish Armada, and finally her old age and her last, enigmatic relationship with her young protégé, the Earl of Essex."

The program is scheduled to air November 13 and 20, 2005.
