The first episode of the new series has already aired, with a brand new opening sequence and cast. But what’s next for the series? We already know from the media some of the things that are coming up, but using the Series 6 opening credits, we know even more… (Shown in order of opening credits, not appearance)
We know there will be a special about Queen Mary
We know there will be a special about George III.
We know there will be a special about Napoleon.
We know there will be a special about Queen Victoria.
We know there will be a special about Winston Churchill.
There could most possibly be a special about Boudicca or another Celtic leader.
There could also most possibly be a special about an Egyptian leader/Pharaoh.
There might be a special about a Saxon leader or King?
We know there will be a special about an Emperor.
There will be a special about Charles I/Oliver Cromwell and England’s Civil War .
There will be lots of Middle Ages specials, along with King John and Magna Carta.
And so that adds up with what could most possibly be what the new 12 episodes will be about. (in no particular order:)
1. Henry VIII (Rowan Atkinson)
2. King John and Magna Carta (Ben Miller)
3. George III (Simon Farnaby)
4. Boudica/Another Celtic Leader
5. A Saxon Warrior/King
6. Queen Victoria (Martha Howe-Douglas)
7. Mary I
8. Oliver Cromwell (Lawry Lewin) (and Charles I and the English Civil War)
9. An Egyptian Pharaoh/Leader
10. Napoleon (Jim Howick)
11. Winston Churchill (Jim Howick)
12. A Roman Emperor/Leader (Ben Wilbon)
So, will be correct? We’ll find out after the series finishes airing!
The Series finished airing towards the end of August, and if you want to see more detail about the Series check out our posts about each episode as the Series went through, or check out the ‘Series 6’ page. So, how did we do?
Henry VIII, King John, Napoleon, Churchill, Queen Victoria, Cromwell and Mary I (of Scotland) were all correct! We also guessed Boudica as a possibility, A Saxon warrior or King, which was Alfred, and an Egyptian pharaoh-Cleopatra! And, as these were from looking at the opening credits, although there wasn’t a whole episode on one, we saw many Roman Emperors, including Nero, Caligula, Caesar and Anthony. The only one we didn’t guess was William the Conqueror, but we did guess there would be more Middle Ages Kings.
