Full disclosure – I know very little about English history so I spent the first couple of episodes of ‘The Crown’ thinking - who’s he??, who’s she??.
The reason I tuned in was because I heard The Crown was the most expensive Netflix Original Series to date and it piqued my interest.
I certainly haven’t been disappointed. The scenery is spectacular and the costumes and jewels are exquisite. However, I’ve been very impressed with the acting. Claire Foy and Matt Smith (as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip) are brilliant and John Lithgow (as Winston Churchill) is intensely dislikeable.
Season 2 isn’t due to be released until last 2017, but this series is well worth your time.
