Queenie: Blackadder II

Queenie is the highly unstable center of focus for Blackadder II and the characters' scheming, playing them off one another in a way that suggests she's not as stupid as she acts. Miranda Richardson is also given some of the best lines in the show.

A Look Back at Elizabeth R (1971)

The series covers Elizabeth's life from the last few years of her sister Mary's reign until Queen Elizabeth's death, all in six 85-minute episodes. At least six of Glenda Jackson's costumes are direct recreations from portraits of Elizabeth I, including the well-known Darnley portrait, Phoenix portrait, Armada portrait, and Ditchley portrait.
