News & Interviews for The Crown: Season 1
Neither idolatrous nor iconoclastic, series one even has you absorbed in the rival virtues of Clarence House and Buckingham Palace.
Our ceaseless infatuation with Queen Elizabeth II is given yet more fuel by this sumptuous, superbly produced series...Under the direction of Stephen Daldry (The Hours; Billy Elliot) Claire Foy gives a nice, nervy edge to Elizabeth.
When Netflix does a genre, it usually does it right. The Crown looks to be highbrow drama that understands history is most compelling when it reveals the personal turmoil and struggles of public figures.
Netflix's lavish production ticks all the boxes of a royal awards contender: impeccable craftsmanship, sterling performances and a historical story. But all that polish may have dulled its edge.
This is big league television -- the kind of ambitious and exuberant project that will be talked about in years to come.
Audience Reviews for The Crown: Season 1
I really don't see the point of writing a series about the Queen when she is still very much alive. It's well acted but I am really unsure of the historical accuracy and the saucy drama. Matt Smith was a bad cast for playing Phillip.
