Have you been watching Netflix's "The Crown"? I have, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it! I didn't take to it immediately: nobody truly looked like the royals and I was a bit put off initially by the depiction of the royals being "ordinary" etc however, its gorgeous production design, fabulous script, understated acting and possibly accurate behind the scenes historical detail won me over! I am particularly impressed by Claire Foy who plays Queen Elizabeth - she is really quite terrific at being very regally contained, but believably human at the same time. Most of all though, I think John Lithgow as Winston Churchill is the star of the series. I feel certain he will be up for an Emmy or Golden Globe for his performance here.
Anyway, watching him has inspired the following two images I cobbled together based on famous quotes uttered by the great man himself.
