Title: British Monarchy Shows
Post by: Brandonazz on January 05, 2017, 06:46:47 pm
Right now there's The Crown (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crown_(TV_series)) (Elizabeth II) and Victoria (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_(TV_series)).

The lead in The Crown does an excellent job with mimicking Liz 2's mannerisms and Jenna-Louise Coleman is a pretty great Victoria.

Anyone watching these or, like, The Tudors or whatever?

I liked that one episode of Doctor Who where Queen Victoria got bit by a space werewolf.

That's the episode that has the origin of the Torchwood spin-off.

Also you should include the first three seasons of Blackadder in there since they all feature british monarchs. (Admittedly the first season features the fictional Richard IV, but it does also have Henry Tudor)

My housemate watched The Crown and I saw bits of it, seemed pretty good. Seeing Matt Smith as prince Phillip is weeeeird.
