“The Crown,” the Netflix series on the life of Queen Elizabeth II, is based on history, but not bounded by it. I showed how that worked in my discussion of its treatment of the Suez cover-up (ICYMI: http://bit.ly/suez1956 ). What makes the approach particularly slippery is that the series can be fanatically faithful to some arcane detail, and seconds later be totally disrespectful of a more important one. I examine two Suez-related examples in this addendum.
