We’re pretty close to present day now, and you’ve got to wonder how pleased the monarchy are with these dramatisations. Imelda Staunton makes a feasible Elizabeth (amazing the power of an iconic hairstyle on a quality actor), but the real issue is the PAGES of dialogue – obviously invented, and QUITE some licence taken. The finale was a bit of a lowpoint but I daresay we’ll be sticking with it.
