Description & Features+

A dramatic portrait of one of the world’s most powerful women As seen on ABC Elizabeth Windsor rose to the throne in 1952 and has been Queen of the United Kingdom ever since. She has reigned over turbulent times. Social upheavals, cash problems, civil unrest, and family woes have challenged her spirit, her principles, and her resolve. This five-part British series blends dramatized scenes behind palace doors with documentary footage and new interviews with royal insiders. Five top British actresses portray the queen at pivotal moments in her reign from 1955 to 2005: Emilia Fox (Silent Witness), Samantha Bond (GoldenEye), Susan Jameson (New Tricks), Barbara Flynn (Cracker), and Diana Quick (Brideshead Revisited). Biographers, journalists, government officials, palace staff, and a former Archbishop of Canterbury share insights and memories from a half-century reign. Groundbreaking and provocative, The Queen reveals the monarch as you’ve never seen her before. Episode 1: Sisters Head of the church as well as the state, the young queen (Emilia Fox) is torn. Her sister, Princess Margaret, is in love with Group Captain Peter Townsend, a dashing, divorced royal servant. The queen wants her sister to be happy, but she knows her duty. Episode 2: Us and Them The royal family’s popularity is at an all-time low. Nearly half of England wants to do away with the monarchy altogether. The queen (Samantha Bond) must ask for a pay raise, the IRA makes threats, and Princess Anne is nearly kidnapped. Episode 3: The Rivals In 1986, the Commonwealth has its first female prime minister, and the queen (Susan Jameson) is not amused. Mrs. Thatcher opposes Her Majesty on almost everything, especially sanctions against apartheid in South Africa. Episode 4: The Enemy Within Andrew and Fergie split, and Charles and Diana’s mounting troubles are tabloid fodder. In November, Windsor Castle is badly damaged by fire. For the queen (Barbara Flynn), 1992 is the worst year of her life—her annus horribilis. Episode 5: How Do You Solve a Problem Like Camilla? The queen (Diana Quick) is in no hurry to welcome Camilla Parker Bowles into the royal family. For Prince Charles, being with the woman he really loves is nonnegotiable. The ultimate survivor and pragmatist, the queen finally accepts the marriage.
