In the series, Peter constantly tries to keep the memories of his mother alive, as he grew up with her around. Peter's mother is also stated as having been the previous Empress Consort. However, in reality, his mother was Grand Duchess Anna Petrovna of Russia and, a few days after giving birth to him, she died at the age of 20 from a postpartum infection. See more »

A delightful surprise
17 May 2020 | by maijitaSee all my reviews

A very funny, entertaining and addictive series. Elle Fanning gets to do proper acting for the first time and I quite like her. Nicholas Hoult is very good. Reminds me of his Skins days. Not another series comes to mind that is like this. At the moment a unique delight. I recommend to anyone looking for a new series to pass their time and wanting to have a few laughs.
