    Terra Nullius is, for me, a series highlight. Emma Corrin is beyond.

    Makes sense. The way she so effortlessly gelled with this cast, something would just feel off if she only had a single season, even if the cameo is rather short as I’m guessing it will be.

    Also at 32 seconds is that Kate Middleton?

    I doubt the Queen or even Prince William would be okay with Kate appearing on the show.

    Apparently William didn’t have kind words for this season, or the show as a whole. Given the depiction of his parents, I’m not surprised.

    Watched Episodes 2 & 3. Both far better than the opener, and “Fairytale” is one of my favorite episodes across the whole series. Emma Corrin is an absolute star.

    Watched the middle four.

    Favourites: this to me was Anderson’s best so far. I thought her scene with Colman at the beginning was perfectly in tune with the mannerisms she established but still grounded in emotion. Episode was fairly passable after that.

    Fagan: one of the show’s bests ever. Felt frozen for a little bit right before the police came in. Also…are we prepared to talk about how that’s a winning Colman tape? She earns her spot as the default front runner now.

    Terra Nulius: what else has to be said? Corrin and O’Connor are fantastic.

    The Hereditary Principle: HBC is great, this episode wasn’t super memorable though. Other than hammering home how absolutely despicable the Royals are

    Couldn’t agree more and in my opinion she has just as good a tape with 48:1 !

    I wasn’t a fan of her work so much last season but she was truly excellent this season.

    Colman has a lot of outstanding episodes. Aside from her exceptional break-in and private audience scene in “Fagan” and acting duels with Gillian Anderson on “48:1”, she still has “Favourites” and “War” even. Her last confrontation scene with O’Connor was powerful and riveting.

    Olivia Colman’s acting range as Queen Elizabeth II deserves all the awards and recognition.

    I mentioned I’ll be doing the reviews slowly as I need sometime to think about them (it’s not easy to binge something and review it in such a quick succession).

    48:1
    Grade: A
    MVP: Gillian Anderson

    I wasn’t so much of a fan of this episode to start with but wow! This is probably Anderson’s best tape (my thoughts are still reserved on War) and whilst I slightly prefer Corrin I would be just as happy with Anderson winning.

    Also I thought the writing on this one was excellent. I liked the whole Brexit allegory with Thatcher’s response and relationship to the Commonwealth and I thought overall it was quite well written. My fourth favourite episode of the season.

    I know for costumes they are obviously going to submit Fairytale for the Emmys but this would be just as good a submission as well. The costume design of the Queen and Thatcher’s dresses in that scene where the photograph was being taken was excellent. It really made the characters visually standout.

    Whomever described this episode as a Wimbledon final was correct and I think Nina Gold should have that casting award on lock. She already deserved it for casting Corrin as Diana but casting Anderson as Thatcher is just as excellent a casting decision. You really needed to have someone really versatile to perform in the scene where the Queen and Thatcher are having the feud and considering how Anderson is one of the greatest stage actresses in the modern era I’d say it was an excellent casting decision. Both castings will go down as two of the best in history (I’m not joking).

    Also I thought Nicholas Farrell was very underrated. He had little to do but he made the most of it. That guy who plays Prince Andrew continues to be absolutely creepy. Although to be fair probably not as creepy as the real Prince Andrew.

    Olivia Colman’s acting range as Queen Elizabeth II deserves all the awards and recognition.

    Her low key breakdown when everybody leaves the room after Fagan is arrested is is still one of the most amazingly underplayed yet emotionally charged reactions I’ve seen an actor deliver and Fagan deserves to be her tape for that alone like that’s an Oscar clip.

    But Colman’s work is uniformly strong across the season eg even in HBC’s episode, the sister scenes are excellent from their camaraderie to their big fight scene when Colman lets rip and breaks Margaret’s heart.

    I really hope she gets awards attention for this too.

    I mean there was literally a line in Favourites when the Queen congratulates Charles and Diana on her being pregnant with Harry or something and he says “thanks but the pregnancy depresses both of us immensely”.

    I’m extremely positive that this did not happen. The Crown can play fast and loose with history for dramatic purposes sometimes but I doubt they would go this far.

    I made a mistake as it wasn’t in Favourites but it was in The Hereditary Test.

    Of course no one knows if it happened in real life (as is the case in any private conversation) but it was definitely a part of the script lol. And anyway it’s not as if the show hasn’t gone further with historical inaccuracies (I say this as the show’s biggest fan on here).

    Oh, I thought you might have confused it with Charles talking about how the pregnancy was difficult for Diana in Favourites. I would say I don’t think he necessarily meant that the pregnancy was the reason for the gloominess and all.

    Indeed. Very strong and consistent performance across the season, especially having at least one scene with almost the entire cast. In fact, in almost all of her scenes, the other party’s the one always directly showing emotions and Colman counters it with restraint and reserved play of her internal struggles of emotions. Very regal and much expected from a settled sovereign. But during the very very few and rare times that she lets her emotions out, she goes in for the kill. Brilliant!
