I'm somewhat excited about this series. The costumes look superb, and having seen Dame Helen Mirren in 'The Queen', as well as in 'The Audiemce', I'm pretty sure she'll do a fabulous job, if cast.

BBC lost The Crown jewel because it can't compete with Netflix - Telegraph
Quote:

The BBC pitched for blockbuster new royal drama The Crown but could not compete with the global financial might of Netflix, its head of television has admitted.

Danny Cohen, director of television, said the corporation wanted to broadcast The Crown, a landmark drama about the life of the Queen, considering it a "classic BBC subject".

But, he has disclosed, it could not keep up with the coffers of Netflix and lost out, despite its strong British connection.

In the end, the drama is set to become the most expensive Netflix drama to date, win a $100million budget.

"It's a classic BBC subject, but we couldn't compete with the amount of money Netflix were prepared to pay for that production, even though we would have loved to be a co-producer."
It's sad that the BBC no longer has the resources for such projects, and as Danny Cohen says, "It's a classic BBC subject."

Matt Smith looks dashing as Prince Phillip while filming The Crown with Claire Foy | Daily Mail Online
Quote:

They are two of the country's best young acting talents.

And Matt Smith and Claire Foy certainly looked the part as they filmed scenes for forthcoming 10-part Netflix series The Crown at London's Lyceum Theatre on Saturday night.

The former Doctor Who star is portraying Prince Philip in the biographical drama while period drama favourite Claire is assuming the role of Queen Elizabeth II.

:previous: If Matt Smith had redder hair in this, he'd look like Prince Harry. :biggrin: It makes sense to me, because I've long thought that Harry resembles Philip.:smile:

Claire Foy looks very much like the late queen Fabiola of Belgium in the above photos,I'm sure the producers would disagree with me!

Is there a release date yet for this series?

Empress Merel 10-03-2015 08:13 AM

I'm excited about this. Netflix has produced some brilliant tv series.

So excited to see this series.

I cannot say I'm impressed, and when Prince Philip/Matt Smith said to the Queen/Claire Foy ''you are the Queen of England'' then I thought, no, she is not, she is the Queen of the United Kingdom.

An Ard Ri 01-06-2016 06:24 PM

I'm really looking forward to this series,has a release date been announced?

Dman 01-06-2016 06:26 PM

Can't wait to see this series.

Yes, but (IMO) Queen of England has more oomph than Queen of the United Kingdom.

This series looks great. I look forward to it.

Matt Smith looks nothing like Philip though. He has too much hair, and it's the wrong colour. Philip's hair always looked thin and pale to me, and slicked down with too much California Poppy.

Dman 01-06-2016 09:53 PM

I like how they are capturing the star quality of The Queen in her younger days. People must remember, before there was a Charles & Diana or William & Catherine, there was Elizabetn & Philip. They had the star factor back in the day.

HRHHermione 01-06-2016 10:07 PM

I truly can't wait for this- the trailer was outstanding.

I don't think I've been disappointed yet in anything Netflix has done, it's no wonder their stock is through the roof. I'm looking very forward to this.

Some time this year.

I'm fairly pleased by the trailer. The casting looks great - love who they have for Queen Mary, David, and Wallis, and Churchill. Little Charles and Anne in that first scene look adorable. Matt Smith definitely has an air about him that resembles the DoE, even if his hair isn't perfect (and he has eyebrows).
