I have never written a review / add comments, but this time I feel I should.
Season 1 and 2 were brilliant, but at watching season 3, my wife and I got really bored at times. The acting of Olivia Colman was soo totally different, it 'killed' the grandeur Claire Foy brought in the first two seasons.
In fact, we more or less assumed this season would be the last one...
But just read that Claire will back in season 4 - hopefully she is well paid now...
I am sure Olivia Colman is a great actress, but in our opinion, not in this role.
* It seems when rating season 3 (5/10) - I'll be rating all seasons as well.
