From writer Peter Morgan, who previously gave us The Queen and Frost/Nixon, comes The Crown, a new series on Netflix. The Crown will tell the story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign from 1947 to the present. And it looks fantastic.

A) It turns out “Matt Smith rowing” is a very specific sexual preference for me that the Kinsey scale didn’t prepare me for.

B) Matt Smith is playing Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. He is…something. A smattering of his somethings:

Prince Philip has previously made remarks offensive to minority groups. In May, during a visit to the Welsh Assembly, he met a group from the British Deaf Association, pointed to a Caribbean music band, and said: “Deaf? If you are near there, no wonder you are deaf.”

On a visit to China in 1986 he told British students: “If you stay here much longer you’ll all be slitty-eyed.”

That’s two. Here’s a whole bunch more. And if Matt Smith makes me lustful for this individual, I will be greatly displeased.

C) “You’re my wife or my queen?”
“I am both and a strong man will be able to kneel to both.”

OLD TIMEY AND LITERAL YAS QUEEN.

All 10 episodes of the first season of The Crown will land on Netflix Nov. 4. The series is expected to have six seasons in total.
