It is the late sixteenth century and Elizabeth I is the protestant Queen of England. Her cousin Mary returns from France to Scotland and is hailed as Mary Queen of Scots, a catholic queen. She is a threat to Elizabeth as she has a claim to the throne of England. And so begins a historic drama about the struggle for power between the Catholics and Protestants, of dirty politics, family rivalry, murder, deceit, lust and betrayal.
