I've already seen sharp criticisms of the authenticity of costumes, etc for this upcoming series about young Mary Queen of Scots. Would be best for the critics to keep in mind that encouraging the younger generation to watch some form of history of the human race should be endorsed and supported, rather than squelching the effort with negativity. If it's necessary to accomplish this major feat by *sexing up* history somewhat - so be it, for the greater good.
On the trail of a new historical series - when it *reigns* it pours with information about this upcoming saga. Appears both Ashford Castle, Co Mayo and indeed the one visited last week at Tullamore are filming locations. Latter is prob for interiors:
This area of Co Mayo was hometurf for one branch of my family tree - the others were located in Nottinghamshire,UK and Co Cork, Irl.
