Netflix have just released the trailer for their £156 million production The Crown, a British period drama following the life of a young Queen Elizabeth II. Claire Foy takes on the role of the Queen, while Dr Who's Matt Smith plays Prince Philip and, in a slightly left-field choice, John Lithgow is takes on the role of Winston Churchill. The series has been written and created by Peter Morgan, who wrote the Oscar-winning film The Queen, and has Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry in the directors chair. If they can take advantage of the Downton Abbey-shaped void in peoples lives this could be a huge hit. We'll  find out when it premieres November 4th.
