The Crown (2016) – A Netflix Romantic, Historical Drama about Queen Elizabeth
When first I saw a teaser for Netflix's The Crown, a drama that crept up on me as I didn't know of its existence until its first teaser trailer aired, I was intrigued. It wasn't until time passed, and more information, photos and I read more about the cast that I become completely immersed in the idea of this as a period drama.
I've never been one who followed the royal family (unless seeing multiple adaptations of Queen Victoria and Albert's story counts), however the fact that this was inspired by a reigning queen's early days, plus I'd seen a drama about her father (who had the crown forced on him in many ways) and this starred Matt Smith (Doctor Who!) meant that all the ducks were in a row. It was a given, I'd be watching this.
