" The Crown " is one of Netflix's flagship series, and has so far depicted the first four decades of Elizabeth II's rule over the course of four "I think it would help ' The Crown ' an enormous amount if, at the beginning of each episode, it stated that: 'This isn't true but it is based around some real events

This is the British government’s reason for igniting a foolhardy battle with TV show ‘ The Crown ’. Who needs a health warning to prepare to watch TV? That gaffe only looked worse, however, when Dowden added: “I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake

The Culture Secretary is planning to ask Netflix to add a “health warning” before each episode of The Crown — and no, not because viewers’ hate of Prince Charles is causing high blood pressure. (This hasn’t been proven, but also hasn’t been disproven.)

Secretary Oliver Dowden reportedly believes that younger viewers won’t understand that the series — which is widely understood to be based on true events — is dramatised.

“It’s a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that,” Dowden told the Daily Mail on 29th November. “Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.”

The Crown Series 4: The Reviews Are In, And They're Positively Glowing

  The Crown Series 4: The Reviews Are In, And They're Positively Glowing Reviews have begun pouring in for the upcoming fourth series of The Crown – and they’re positively glowing. While the last season of the royal drama received more mixed reviews, the forthcoming episodes have been raved about by critics, and the show is once again being hailed as the jewel in Netflix’s… well… crown. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a great deal of the praise has been heaped on newcomers Emma Corrin and Gillian Anderson, who join The Crown in its fourth series as Princess Diana and former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, respectively.

The culture secretary has said the creators behind TV series The Crown , based on the lives of the Royal Family, need to make clear the show is fiction . Peter Morgan, the show 's creator, has defended the fictionalised account of real-life events , describing the script as a "constant push-pull"

Dowden is expected to formally write to the American streaming company to request that it adds a " health warning " before each episode. "It would help The Crown an enormous amount if at the beginning of each episode it stated that, 'this isn't true but is based around some real events '.

The fourth season of the show focuses on Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the royals during the late 1970s and 1980s, but people have been getting riled up about the depiction of the late Princess Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles (and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles).

But according to The Guardian, many have been especially nitpicky about inaccuracies in the show, from showing the Queen “wrongly dressed for trooping the colour” to Charles’ fishing technique.”

But issuing a health warning over it? Seems a bit drastic, and even historians agree.

Historian Alex von Tunzelmann tweeted: “Netflix already tells people that The Crown is fiction. It’s billed as a drama. Those people in it are actors. I know! Blows your mind.”

The culture secretary plans to write to Netflix and request a “ health warning ” is played before The Crown so viewers are aware that the historical Oliver Dowden said that without the caveat younger viewers who did not live through the events might “mistake fiction for fact” following complaints that

The Crown , A Show Based On True Events , May Get A Health Warning For Being Fictional . Given that " The Crown " offers a dramatized depiction of real events involving Britain's royal family, viewers may not realize that what they're watching is far less

Maybe that “health warning” would be put to better use before an episode of a show with too many hot people, like Emily In Paris? Or one that seems fake but mostly is shockingly real, like The Bachelorette? Just an idea.
