I loved the first installation of The Crown with Claire Foy as HM. The second not so much, though Helena Bonham-Carter was great as Princess Margaret. If they make another season I know I'll watch it. I love Imelda Staunton, she's a great actress. My favourite of her movies is "Vera Drake".

What a cast! Jonathan Pryce is a brilliant choice. I knew about Imelda Staunton playing HMQ but just found out about Lesley Manville playing Princess Margaret. Lesley is an astounding talent and I'll watch anything she's in. She becomes the character and you can't see the acting at all because she's so good at it.

My heart is officially broken: I wanted Bill Nighy for this role.

But I do love Jonathan Pryce.

Wow the cast for this final season is brimming with talent. Debicki as Diana is a great choice. Can't wait.

Quick question - unsure if it belong here.
If you were writing the Crown - which royal Family and time period would you cover?
Personally if I was doing the British royal family I would have started with the Death of Queen Victoria as I review that was the start of the modern British royal family and intend the end of Empire.

A friend thinks that the Dutch royal family would have been more entertaining and dramatic either - but which time period, I dont know.

There was already an ITV series airing on Queen Victoria at the same time so it might have been a bit confusing.

Not too slight the DRF but I could not envisage a netflix series on the Dutch RF taking off the way the Crown has.

I want one with the Swedish royal family. Starting with Gustaf V thru to the present royals. A lot of storylines they can use.

Well if we could choose earlier periods then the Stuarts would be pretty dramatic. Lots of drama there!

Bamp! Netflix has a series called "Reign" with 78 episodes that focuses around the life and times of Mary, Queen of Scots. I enjoyed it.

I had no idea. Is it worth watching?

I only subscribed to Netflix when series one of The Crown came out.

If you're looking for straight up history, you're not going to get it. It was entertaining for me and the plot kept me wanting to see what happened next. One thing though, its *not* a show to put on with children in the room.

Like The Crown, Reign and The Last Kingdom (Alfred the Great time period), these shows take the history and spin a entertaining tale out of it. Right now I'm binge watching "Grey's Anatomy". Always meant to check that show out and started with season 1, episode 1 and there's 16 seasons of 24-26 episodes each. Keeps me off the streets and out of trouble.

Really looking forward to the new episodes of The Crown. It was the very first program I tuned into when I got Netflix access.

oh God no. This is possible the worst show on the planet. I cant call it a historical anything. The fact that it alludes to be about Mary, Queen of Scots just makes me want to hit my head in a wall. Watch only if you are playing a drinking game and want to get really drink in a short period of time.

Agree Mary Queen of Scots, her mother and ever delightful mother in law all must turning in their tombs at this highly fictitious, inaccurate and all round dreadful show.
