Critic Reviews For The Crown: Season 2
" Some viewers may look for exactly this in their television: a beautiful recreation of historical events, connected by safe assumptions about the people who lived through them. But television is capable of so much more." – Ben Travers , indieWire
" Morgan not only has a series to match his 2006 Oscar-winning movie, The Queen, but finally one to exceed it. The Crown – the second season, anyway – is magnificent." – Verne Gay , Newsday
" Lavishly presented and deftly written, save for the odd bum note and over-eager steer, the new series finds Morgan in confident form." – Alison Rowat , The Herald (Scotland)
" The look of awe on Philip's face as Liz pushes out that baby is really
fun, I was pleased."-
Nicole Cliffe , Decider
