Trivia

Rudolf Hess, one of the Nazis featured in the episode was one Adolf Hitler's most devoted men. He was so fanatically dedicated to Hitler that he personally took down Hitler's book "Mein Kamf" as it was dictated to him in short hand while he (Hess) was in prison. See more »

Goofs

Sir Alan 'Tommy' Lascelles refers to Sir Edward Pakenham, but pronounces his name incorrectly as Pay-ken-ham; when in reality it is Pack-n-um, a mistake the real Lascelles would never have made; See more »

Excessive Pomposity
18 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Ths show starts out with an obvious serious discovery. Several men, including one in a German uniform, find a clearing and dig up a sealed box. That box is removed and taken away. Now we cut to Elizabeth, who has become enamored with evangelist Billy Graham. She is starting to deal with some guilt and has seen Graham on television. Philip teases her but she is adamant. Now we cut to Edward, who was banished from the kingdom when he decided to marry a commoner, giving up his throne. He is growing restless and wants to find some kind of work to support his country. He is this condescending, pompous blowhard who spends all his time in idle entertainment, spending his allowance. He needs the Monarch to sign off on anything that he does because, technically, he is not supposed to even show up in England. What follows is the revealing of things that Edward did during the war and Elizabeth's tussle with forgiveness. I must read more about Edward and the connection to the Nazis. This was an eye opener.
