Critic Reviews for King Charles III on Masterpiece

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (8)

Surely the boldest BBC show of the year.

By turns bouncy, melancholy, arrogant and sore betrayed, the face little resembles that of Charles but, somehow, within its planes, there is conveyed the selfsame sense of insane privilege, niggling grievance and open, misunderstood humanity.

If King Charles III never quite escapes its ruling conceit, it nevertheless makes for a pleasurable experience.

May 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The movie, like the Broadway show, is performed as a Shakespearean history play. The dialogue is spoken in verse, the scenes are rapid and punchy, and the actors are top-notch.

A perfect 90 minutes of television.

Perhaps this majestic, unmissable drama will send new audiences back to the source for meaningful encounters with Lear, Lady M, Brutus, Prince Hal and other forebears.

Audience Reviews for King Charles III on Masterpiece

Extraordinary and riveting. "King Charles III" has excellent writing, very fine costumes, adept direction, wonderful acting, superb and haunting music...and drama! This show is edifying for both monarchists and republicans (that's small "r" republicans!), as well as legal philosophers generally. It's certainly worth your while if you're at all interested in British history or government. Highly recommended.
