  • Surely the boldest BBC show of the year.

  • By turns bouncy, melancholy, arrogant and sore betrayed, the face little resembles that of Charles but, somehow, within its planes, there is conveyed the selfsame sense of insane privilege, niggling grievance and open, misunderstood humanity.

  • If King Charles III never quite escapes its ruling conceit, it nevertheless makes for a pleasurable experience.

  • The movie, like the Broadway show, is performed as a Shakespearean history play. The dialogue is spoken in verse, the scenes are rapid and punchy, and the actors are top-notch.

  • The late, brilliant Tim Pigott-Smith is mesmerising as Charles. It's not an impression, thankfully, nor was the actor made up to look like him (that would have been tiresome), but an interpretation of character.

  • It all feels a bit unfair to the real-life counterparts. And then King Charles III makes a fascinating pivot.

Audience Reviews for King Charles III on Masterpiece

    Extraordinary and riveting. "King Charles III" has excellent writing, very fine costumes, adept direction, wonderful acting, superb and haunting music...and drama! This show is edifying for both monarchists and republicans (that's small "r" republicans!), as well as legal philosophers generally. It's certainly worth your while if you're at all interested in British history or government. Highly recommended.
