Boring!!! - The Crown: Series 1 review by EP

Spoiler Alert
21/03/2018

I really do not understand what the fuss is about, yes Clare foy is brilliant at depicting the young queen, but apart from that there is nothing compelling about this drama. We sat through three episodes waiting for the script to pick up, but couldn't take anymore, and can only conclude that people's interest in it is built on the modern taste for voyerism, or what they think is voyerism as so much is fiction. The script is dull, the narrative thin, life is too short and I have better things to do with my life than watch characters that resemble real people drifting through history however beautifully they drift and however well the actors do their job.

The Queen at her best - The Crown: Series 1 review by SC

Spoiler Alert
04/04/2018

I have watched many TV shows and movies about the Queen over the year but have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this.

It was informative, well-acted and the costumes fantastic. Would highly recommend it. Roll on Series 2.

Should we be a Republic? - The Crown: Series 1 review by RR

Spoiler Alert
06/04/2018

I thoroughly enjoyed all Series 1 of "The Crown". My overwhelming impression is that the Queen has almost no say in her own dealings and no power or authority. It is ruled by an Establishment which can be very cruel. The treatments of Edward VIII and Princess Margaret were portrayed as lacking in humanity - indeed, lacking the Christian virtue of love and humankindness - and yet the Queen is head of the Church of England!

Well acted and I particularly enjoyed the casting of Princess Margaret.

Makes me want to become a Republican!

Surprisingly good - The Crown: Series 1 review by DD

Spoiler Alert
23/02/2021

If you can put aside that this is faction rather than factual or fiction it works quite well. Sumptuously shot with great acting. I liked the leisurely pace of the story and I will look forward to the next discs.

The opening three episodes captured the essence of the role of power in the monarchical system and that will be difficult for some people to accept. If you want to watch something about people being nice to each other don’t watch stuff about Kings and Queens.
