All hail, Olivia Colman. As this acclaimed drama series about Queen Elizabeth enters Season 3, Oscar’s reigning Best Actress assumes the lead role in a planned peaceful succession that ends Claire Foy’s fine run as the young monarch. Colman, who won her Oscar playing an earlier ruler, leads an entirely new cast stepping in to re-create the lives of the Windsors from 1964 through 1977. Tobias Menzies will be the new Prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter the new Princess Margaret. Expect a steadier marriage for the queen but no end of national drama.
