Nevill TV – Highlights of the Week

The Real Housewives of Wensleydale

Alice and Anne still aren’t on speaking terms after Anne told Maud that Alice lied about being attainted. Alianor is thinking about running away with her new husband and Alice confides in Isobel that she might have to lock Alianor in a tower until she turns 18. Isobel and Maud giggle over the size of their husbands’ codpieces until Anne shows them her husband’s.

So You Think You Can Joust

Royal Wedding Final. Anthony Wydeville goes head to head with the Bastard of Burgundy. Includes candid interviews with the duchess of Bedford and a sneak peek at the Bastard’s cheersquad rehearsing their Break-a-Leg Madrigal.

Project Run Away

Me? I Wasn’t EvenThere! Challenge
With his narrow win over Warwick in last week’s Leave the Country challenge, and immunity for a record fifth time, the earl of Wiltshire is proving something of a dark horse. This week it’s a team challenge, with Warwick and Fitzhugh up against Wiltshire and Rivers and the knives are out. With the shock elimination of the popular John Nevill, the competition is wide open.

Who Do You Think You Are? (No, Really!)

Join two Edwards – the IV and of Lancaster – as they search for their real fathers.

Medieval Family

A convocation of bishops tries to have the gay ones stoned to death; the dusky princess from the far Amerikas searches London for a churros stand and the fat kid is eaten by the Archbishop of York.

Movie of the Week: Carry On Calais

It’s cross channel mayhem in this classic film. Warwick is up against it with the wily womanising Edward IV on his tail. There’s an Archbishop who just can’t get his head around the concept of celibacy and embarrassment all round when Elizabeth Wydeville discovers Margaret of Anjou’s codpiece collection.

I’m Aristocracy, Get Me Out of Here! – Tower of London

Up for elimination this week: Perkin Warbeck; the duke of Somerset and Henry VI. Vote for your favourite to keep them safe  – the intruder from Burgundy; the lovable rogue or the sensitive one.

Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?

Edmund is preparing for his first battle, but there’s still plenty of time for one last night on the town with Edward. With George sneaking out of the castle to follow them, trouble can’t be far away for our lads! Meanwhile, Richard sulks at home with his sisters because he’s frail and angelic®.

My Big Fat Wydeville Wedding

It’s Kate ‘the Duchess’ Wydeville’s turn to get married and she’s determined to outshine her sister, Elizabeth. Trouble looms as a rival family from the Midlands attempt to kidnap the groom. Even if Kate gets her special dress finished in time, is the wedding over before it begins?

    Very cute! Have a great new year … and I look forward to the next year’s posts.

    Thanks, Esther! You too. Hopefully, I’ll be done with the book I’m working on at the moment and will be back in the 15th century with a vengeance!

  3. Fiz says:

    I laughed myself silly and then forwarded this to my history and TV loving husband and daughter. Thank you for making me laugh and well done! Happy New Year!

  4. Susan Higginbotham says:

    Love these!

  5. Christmas and New Year tv I would actually WATCH?! Amazing! Someone pass the Quality Streets! 😉

    Great post. Happy new year 🙂

  6. Thanks Karen – I needed a laugh!

  7. sonetka says:

    I’d watch all of these and only be mildly embarrassed about it :). I especially like “I’m Aristocracy, Get Me Out Of Here!” Talk about a Hundred Years Show, that one could run forever!

    “…and the fat kid is eaten by the Archbishop of York.”

    I’ve almost fallen of my chair 😀
