Iím watching but I still feel that series 1&2 were better. I preferred the casting and I wasnít as familiar with the events.

I agree that the casting was better in Series 1 & 2 - I am hoping it picks up with Imelda as The Queen in series 5 & 6 (although still fairly good now - except Mrs T - interesting the actress who plays the Queen Mother was interviewed on Radio 2 yesterday afternoon and even Steve Wrtie made a comment that the hair was was OTT and everyone fell around laughing talking about it - glad it wasnt just me that thought it was too characture (again I forget it is a soap opera/drama not history - my constant mistake)

I think Maggie was watching Hairspray far too often.

Finished it last night. I thought Gillian Anderson was very good as Thatcher. I read somewhere about how Charles was the villain of season 4, I donít think so I thought they made both of them as bad as each other, we will never know what really went on in real life I never particularly like Diana I felt there was something sleeket about her. To me what it shows was he was forced into a marriage he didnít want and she knew what she was getting into but wanted the fame of being the next queen but was to young and immature to handle it

An excellent summary of the situation!

I finished it last night too. I have to say I didnít find it as enjoyable as the earlier series. I thought Thatcher was v good and itís as I remember but then I was a young child when she was in power.

I agree Dianna and Charles were portrayed as bad as each other.

I've enjoyed all series but I've got a few misgivings about series 4. I think it's a bit disingenuous of the filmmakers to claim that it's just a drama not a documentary when they go to great lengths to recreate the sets, fashions of the day to the exact design, accents and mannerisms and intersperse the drama with historical footage. People have said they've learned about British history through it and they may assume personal details about the RF are also true when at times they are based on speculation or just fiction. There are some great one-line put downs, though.

I thought the Diana character was perfect, Charles was good but his posture was a bit too bowed and Gillian Anderson outThatchered Thatcher. Good but a bit overdone. Tobias Menzies was far better than Matt Smith who just played DoE as a big galoot.

The interaction between Charles and Diana was so bitter. I've no idea if it ever got as bad as portrayed, but, accurate or not, it must still be so painful to their sons who are no doubt still mourning their mother, especially with the whole Martin Bashir interview being brought up again. Seems a bit heartless to do that to two young men who never asked to join the RF.
