1. the Crown

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - FRONT PAGE -

Net­flix claims its scin­til­lat­ing royal drama is the most ex­pen­sive TV se­ries ever made – re­port­edly cost­ing up to £7.5 mil­lion per episode. Claire Foy and Matt Smith play El­iz­a­beth II and Prince Philip in the first two sea­sons, which show the Queen grow­ing into her role, learn­ing how to deal with a hus­band re­sent­ful of his sub­or­di­nate po­si­tion, a naughty fun-lov­ing younger sis­ter and tricky prime min­is­ters. There’s a water­shed mo­ment in the first se­ries when the young monarch finds the con­fi­dence and courage to give Lord Sal­is­bury and Churchill a right royal tick­ing-off for keep­ing her in the dark. Has the Queen watched the show? It has been re­ported that one has – and that one en­joyed it, too. Net­flix, 2 se­ries
