The wife and I just started watching this and are really enjoying it so far. John Lithgow as Winston Churchill is just amazing and it's interesting to see all the little things that are foreign to us like the husband having to walk behind the wife and all that.

We watched & enjoyed it.
Read something that the next season, they're replacing the entire cast. I guess they're jumping ahead a few years & it's simpler than aging the current cast via makeup/prosthetics.

Yes, Season 1 was 1947 to 1955, Season 2 was 1955 to 1965

Season 3 will be from 1965 to 1977 or so and Queen Elizabeth will be portrayed by Olivia Colman who was in Broadchurch and I recall her from Hot Fuzz with Simon Pegg. Prince Phillip with be portrayed by Tobias Menzies who was in Outlander and also Rome.

It will be interesting to see who they get for Season 4 which I guessing will be 1977 - 1990? That's when Diana came on the scene too.

Colman was good in the Night Manager as well.
Menzies does a good job in Outlander.

I hadn't seen the castings for S3, so these I can see working well. The S1-2 cast worked really well, so we were cautiously optimistic for the new cast.

Maybe Tacfoley can chime in on this one:

I noticed in the first episode of The Crown that one or two men in Royal Navy(?) dress had only one epaulet (shoulder board) on their uniform.

What does that signify? I've always only seen them in pairs.

RAF Group Captain Townsend, was he considered an Aide-de-camp to King George VI? He wore an aiguillette and seems to be his right hand man.

she was great in Broadchurch ( which sadly will not have a season 4),

looking forward to the new season(s) of the Crown

Very good series. Not sure how accurate it is but, this ends up being a huge dinner topic for a number of our older members of the family during dinner as they reminisce about what it was like living during those times. My mother's name is Margaret so she always had an affinity to Princess Margaret...the gal playing her Vanessa Kirby is smokin' hot Eek

Watched both seasons and enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to S3.

We liked it. Looking forward to S3. It's amazing to me that she's been Queen longer than I've been alive. Sixty-something years!
