Probably the single most frustrating thing about writing Episode 2, was how much I had history I had to leave out to make it fit into the plot.
Welcome to Whitehall, where the true history of Catherine of Braganza and her marriage to King Charles II of England is brought to life with all its sensual scandal and political intrigue. Venture back in time to a place where the games of royals affect the lives of all.
Presented in 13 episodes, Whitehall is written by Liz Duffy Adams, Delia Sherman, Barbara Samuel, Madeleine Robins, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Sarah Smith.
