Second time through this darkly fun, twisted series.

Finished The Crown, season three.

And while there's much to admire and its still good television, I'm disappointed that they've started playing so fast and loose with the historical record (sadly, no, that dirty limerick contest between Margaret and LBJ never happened). And a couple of big missteps the first two seasons never made - the most cring-inducing one involving a teardrop. They also seem to be galloping to quickly towards more modern timed when they could have seasons covering individual years at a more leisurely pace.

Erin Doherty wonderful as Anne, and steals every scene she's in. Loved her singing alond with "Starman" in Anne's voice.

I have not watched any of it, although I would like to. It is receiving some damming reviews not least the host of inaccurate events and portrayal of people who are still with us. Not a comfortable viewing for William and Harry I would guess.

Have been watching this series. Huw Watkins as Harold Wilson is brilliant as is Princess Anne. The Aberfan episode was very moving and sensitively done.
