Time Out says

Meticulously schoolmarmish, John Hale's script lays out all the power plays behind Elizabeth Tudor's battle to keep Mary Stuart off her throne, but fails to provide much else. Redgrave (melting) and Jackson (tetchy) are head girls on the opposing teams, while Jarrott, who made a small corner for himself in this sort of coffee-table kitsch (Anne of the Thousand Days, Lost Horizon) before walking on the wilder side (The Other Side of Midnight), never lifts it much above the level of a village pageant.
