A Reader Question for the Community: Crown Season 4

 

A Reader Question for the Community:

Dear Muffy,

I was wondering what your readers think of the Crown Season 4.   I personally think it is good but not great, with the exception of the episode featuring the intruder in the Queen's bedroom, which was first rate.  He gave a tremendous performance.   While I am not completely through the whole season,  I think Diana actress sounds like her but misses the essence of her personality.  

Since signing up again for Netflex, I have found it amusing to watch Olivia Colman play both Ellie Miller on Bancroft and the Queen on The Crown.

  1. I think it's the best season in the entire series. Some brilliant actresses, and some magnificent writing.

  4. I loved Claire Foy in the first two seasons, even more so than Olivia Colman. There have been a couple of so-so episodes, but overall I have thoroughly enjoyed the series. However, the supporting cast is what makes it for me. The moss green Defenders, the odd silver Aston Martin, the Holland and me & Holland shotguns, what I assume are Mauser rifles, all the Beauforts except for Prince Anne with a Bedale, Pimms, single malts, scratchy tweeds and the stiff upper lip.

  7. A great bit of escapist romp to be sure! At a time when we can really use it! Cheers!

  8. I feel as if that may be the point. Emma Corrin is playing timid 80's Diana. She hasn't had her glow up post BBC interview yet. 90's Diana is supposed to be played by a different actress

  9. Gillian Anderson is absolutely brilliant as Margaret Thatcher!

  10. Got through the whole season and enjoyed it thoroughly. I thought Emma Corrin did a good job, and Gillian Anderson was indeed excellent. Looking forward to the new cast for seasons 5 and 6, though the show won't be back until 2022: Imelda Staunton as Elizabeth, Jonathan Pryce as Philip, Lesley Manville as Margaret, Elizabeth Debicki as Diana.
