In the fourth season of The Crown, three women are put at the forefront and make it the most memorable season yet.

Queen Elizabeth II (Olivia Colman) welcomes Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) as the first female Prime Minister, though the two have a bumpy relationship along the way. Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) is still in love with Camilla Parker Bowles (Emerald Fennell) but finds a suitable wife in Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin).

Anderson and Corrin are both welcome additions to the cast and bring powerful dynamics in their controversial characters. O’Connor is brilliant as Charles and may even make you feel sympathetic before you see how disgusting he is toward Diana.

There’s a bit of a stray from Elizabeth as Diana and Charles become the headlining story, but it’s what you expect the show to do.

Final say: Reaching greatness. ★★★★★
