James VI and I was famous for his penchant for having male favourites.

Mary & George (2024) is a British historical drama based on Benjamin Woolley’s book about the affair between James VI and I and one of those favourites, George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham.

In this episode of History Extra, Benjamin Woolley talks about the series—including some of the historical material he uncovered in his research—and his involvement with the making of it.
