Amazing episode!..And Derek Jacobi is a real treasure of British Acting.
21 April 2020 | by nassimhilal-1See all my reviews

I loved this episode, powerful, emotional and superb acting from all involved but even more so from Derek Jacobi as the Duke of Windsor. If this was a movie, he would surely deserve an Oscar for his role here. And this episode felt like great cinema too. The writing is just masterful and all the elements of this episode make it a very special moment in this third season of "the crown".
