"Not me, I'm afraid - Sweetie is someone else" had me laugh out loud. It also rang a little false that the entire staff of the palace wouldn't know this...
Anne and Philip's first scene was great. Their exchange (and subsequent scenes together) made me wonder if their relationship was that good in real life.
Ahh!! Yes, I couldn't figure out how I recognised him - in my case, The Fall but thank you for this nudge.
I know zero Greek, and I bought it, but I can imagine how annoying it would be to a native-speaker for the show to have a lapse on this detail.
I am not a big Royal fan but I had no idea about Philips's mother. As others have said, her story is fantastic and it's a shame we've all had to go elsewhere to learn more about it.
Philip IS an ass, agreed! I can't remember who upthread mentioned Matt Smith's Philip being so whiny, and I agree. I also enjoyed Matt as Philip, but Tobias is showing Philip as he mellows.
I think for viewers who aren't really aware of the Royals, the boys are out of sight and out of mind. I'd forgotten they exist entirely. I think a side comment about the whereabouts of all the boys would be helpful.
