The Crown

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - ONSCREEN -

Orig­i­nal Net­flix Show. Cre­ated and writ­ten by Peter Morgan. Star­ring Claire Foy, Matt Smith and Vanessa Kirby.

There is no need what­so­ever to be a loyal roy­al­ist in or­der to dial up and binge-watch new Net­flix block­buster The Crown. The fact this first sea­son cost over $170 mil­lion to make should tell you no ex­pense was spared in telling the story, with a sec­ond sea­son al­ready com­mis­sioned. The show kicks off in 1947, trac­ing the life and early reign of Queen El­iz­a­beth II (played by Claire Foy). Dr Who fans will re­joice in the cast­ing of Matt Smith as her hus­band Prince Philip, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh, and with class sto­ry­tellers such as Os­car-nom­i­nated film­maker Stephen Daldry on di­rect­ing du­ties, I’m find­ing it very hard to push pause on my re­mote! A crack­ing watch.
