The Crown: Season 1 TV review - Aussieboyreviews
WILL HISTORY VIEWERS APPRECIATE LEARNING ABOUT THE QUEEN IN THE CROWN?
This slow-moving, yet very interesting and compelling biography-drama series centring on Queen Elizabeth II is immediately gripping. Although sometimes hard to pay attention to, The Crown is simply powerful.
When the young Elizabeth is crowned the Queen, she must deal with political issues and personal matters in ways she never imagined.

Aussie boy's thoughts
With more seasons clearly on their way, the first season of The Crown excellently demonstrates an early section of Queen Elizabeth II’s life, with fascinating portrayals of history and exquisite performances. The series is very impressive, powerful and moving, or more like slow-moving. The story can occasionally seem quite difficult to keep up with, but overall, it’s very well-constructed and the unforgettable Claire Foy is absolutely magnificent.
