Although I really enjoyed the movie, I thought it was interesting how Mrs. Quinet pointed out some historical errors today. After some research, I found a few more discrepancies between the movie and history. Firstly,
Elizabeth was arrested and sent to the Tower in 1554, but was then placed under house arrest as (not Hatfield) for four years. Another mistake is that the Pope did not excommunicate Woodstock and encourage assassination attempts by Catholics until 1570.
