Quotes

Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother: You would say more indicative of a cry for attention, than a genuine suicide attempt? A cri de coeur, rather than a coup de grâce?

End of a disappointing season
15 December 2019 | by andynwladSee all my reviews

Helena Bonham Carter is the central actress in this final episode of what for me has been a disappointing season. The story of the breakdown of the marriage of Princess Margaret is a well documented one and HBC portrays her well as a brittle, perhaps slightly fragile and not very likeable woman, but it is easy to feel sad for the character. As for Olivia Colman as Her Majesty, I think the least said the better, I feel for her as following Claire Foy is indeed an impossible act to follow, I really don't know what the casting people were thinking, she is absolutely nothing like the Queen and basically plays herself with a wig and an unconvincing posh accent. It's taken me weeks to watch this season, where as seasons one and two were consumed as soon as they were available. On the plus side, the production and settings are just as lavish as previously, hope season 4 is better and I look forward to the recast for seasons five and six, please, please cast Helen Mirren.
