What Tudor Historical Fiction Novel Do You Want to See on TV?

Now that we have seen a few adaptions of several of Philippa Gregory's novels, what other historical novels would you like to see turned into a movie or show?

  2. Can't think of a novel that blew me away, but I'd like a movie about Catherine of Valois and Owen Tudor :)

  3. I would like to see one or both of Nancy Bilyeau's novels turned into movies. She wrote The Crown and also The Chalice, both of which have a great, reluctant protagonist, Joanna Stafford, who winds up solving mysteries. Viewers would get settings galore - The Tower, monasteries, sacked monasteries, houses of the Tudor-era rich and famous, villages. And you should read whom we would meet!

  6. "The Nonsuch Lure." I can't recall the author's name but it's a great mystery/romance that moves back and forth in time between Henry VIII's lost Nonsuch Palace and the present day.

  9. "The Sunne in Splendour" isn't precisely Tudor historical fiction, but I would like to see the story done well, rather than Gregory's "version". More clearly Tudor -- "Wolf Hall" for drama or Fiona Buckley's "To Shield the Queen", which looks at Amy Robsart's death (because I love whodunnits)
