Whitehall (Season 1 Episode 8): “Ambitions Which Climb Upwards”
Even the queens don’t always get their happy endings. No baby and heir to the thrown in her belly. The king taking up in his old bed of preference. Plus, a slew of others who want nothing more than to see her fail. Luckily, Catherine is not the quitting type and carries on to be the queen Charles and England want. Will it be enough and does she have enough people and time on her side to win?
Whitehall is a must read series that continues to keep you coming back for more. Episode 8 is no different. Catherine refuses to quit. Barbara continues to use her only talents of lying and persuasion to get what she wants. And each new character that comes along only makes the story juicer. Looking forward to episode 9!
