The secret to a compelling historical drama is not the verbatim recounting of significant events but how you aggregate them through the thread of good storytelling.

For this job there’s no better candidate than The Queen and Frost/Nixon scribe, Peter Morgan. Where season one of The Crown introduced the characters, season two layers on the flesh. Morgan’s deft ability to captivate and entertain viewers extends to the JFK assassination, the Suez Canal crisis that embarrassed the United Kingdom on the international stage, and even the Profumo affair. A purported £200 million was allocated for the production of The Crown‘s second season, and every penny is up there on the screen – this is television on a grand scale, and not to be missed.
