      • Yes. I like Margaret’s story line. More the affair with Townsend than with Armstrong Jones. I’ll be interested to see it in more modern times – the stuff I was alive for!

      • Oh yes! I forgot about the painting. Lithgow plays an amazing Churchill! I felt bad for Liz in the Kennedy episode. Jackie must have made everyone feel stodgy!

      • The show’s creator also wrote Frost/Nixon and Rush, which are all about rivalries and have pivotal scenes when there’s only two of them on screen. I’m glad he’s included that same essence in the show. Amazing to think about the painting. The real queen watches it too. Can you imagine her DVD commentary!
