  • Morgan dramatizes Elizabeth's life--he builds the narrative on a framework of public events but includes private exchanges and personal motives in a way that's entirely believable and doesn't feel in the least bit exploitative. Show More

  • Morgan and director-producer Stephen Daldry make the show engrossing both as history and as a drama about family ties. Show More

  • The Crown is sometimes too somber, and slow-moving to a fault (it intends to cover Elizabeth’s entire reign over six seasons). But if you’re looking for an immersive history lesson with all the royal trimmings (ermine and purple velvet among them), it’s an extremely engrossing watch. Show More
