Gillian Anderson is ridiculously good, as is the bloke playing Charles, though his portrayal and scenes with Diana got a bit repetitive toward the end (possibly the idea - to showcase a groundhog day horror story of a marriage).

I do wish they had a few more episodes set on people outside of the incessantly boring royal family. I particularly enjoyed the fictional depiction of the bloke who broke into the palace.

Just read that the actual Mike Fagan's sisters are named.....Margaret and Elizabeth. Couldn't make it up.

Charles should really just give it William when Liz dies
Now that would be a controversial plot line for series 6 or 7.
Yeh looking forward to when they’ve fully caught up to the source material and go their own way like GoT. Charlotte jumping out of nowhere to kill Putin and Liz burning down London.

Not really that impressed with Anderson’s Thatcher. Lots of physical acting. Doesn’t really convey the woman’s energy and gumption.

She was a piece of shit but she had something. She’s a bit limp for most of The Crown.

[Full disclosure - I missed the first 2 episodes. If she was bombastic in that I’ll have to take everyone’s word for it]

Netflix saying it doesn't need a fiction statement at the start. Doesn't Narcos on Netflix begin some sort of fiction statement?

young people apparently will get confused and think it’s a documentary...

It would in fact be pretty sensible to put that statement at the start of the show, but suspect Netflix don’t like being told what to do.

not seen this season, but the trailer looked sensational.
