Series Roundup: The Crown, Series One

Well, it’s done. Ten hours of Stiff Upper Lips and Cut-Glass Accents. But if your Netflix queue is already unmanageable, here’s a brief rundown:

Episode most likely to tip someone over the fence into watching: Windsor

Most Essential Episode: Smoke and Mirrors

Least Essential Episode: Assassins

Most Purely Satisfying Episode: Scientia Potentia Est

Most Valuable Player: David, or the Duke of Windsor. It’s no coincidence that the two episodes featuring him most heavily (‘Windsor’ and ‘Smoke and Mirrors’) wind up on the ‘Best of’ list.

Least Essential Player: Toss-up between Venetia Scott and ‘Porchey’. Let’s give the palm to ‘Porchey’.
