Anybody watching the Crown?

I started watching the latest series of The Crown yesterday and wondered what others thought.
Without any spoilers, I hope, my thoughts are that the characters are not drawn so sympathetically and some parts, like Mrs T’s curtsy and her behaviour at Balmoral, were a bit OTT. I am sure people make mistakes (I am 100% certain I would!) but, I doubt that they would be repeated.

I watched 3 episodes with my daughter last night, we love it and had been looking forward to it for ages. I agree the royal family were portrayed as quite cruel in some scenes. I thought Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher was brilliant she had her voice really well. Looking forward to the rest

Apparently Mrs T did always do very spectacular curtseys

I watched three last evening too. I am enjoying it but, the main characters’ attitudes seem to have changed from previous series. I suppose age could account for that.

Thank you. Will do, I did not spot it when I looked earlier.
