The Crown

I was sure I saw that we had a topic for this series a while ago, but I have been unable to find it, so perhaps I was imagining things?

Anyway, I finished watching season 2 of The Crown on Netflix this week, and I was wondering if any of you have seen it, too. 
In some ways I enjoyed it more than season 1, because the pacing seemed better from the start, but at the same time I think I liked it about as much season 1. One episode I didn't like very much was the Jackie Kennedy episode. I liked the scenes in Ghana, but the whole rivalry between her and the Queen didn't sit right with me, and I wondered how much of it was embellished and pandering to the American audience of the show. I liked the episode about Phillip and Charles' childhoods, though. 
Overall, I thought the earlier episodes of season 2 were the best ones of this season.

I was surprised to hear from my aunt over Christmas that they will be changing the cast for season 3 going forward. I guess they thought Claire Foy was too young to be the Queen in what they have coming up next  (although they haven't noticed a replacement for Matt Smith yet, and I wouldn't mind seeing him stick around if he could). I hope it won't be too hard for me to figure out who everyone is again. I don't know either if they will be replacing the actor who plays Margaret. I think she's really good (and got good episodes in season 2), so I would be sad to see her go, too.
Clueing for looks.
