New TV – The Great

Could The Great be the best TV show to be released during lockdown? Created by The Favourite writer Tony McNamara, the show brings a similar energy, showing us a side of history that – as the show’s subtitle takes care to clarify – is only “occasionally true”. It’s certainly more chaotically entertaining than history could ever be. In the role of the young Catherine the Great, Elle Fanning proves that she’s a mature performer able to carry the drama, in spite – and often because of – her ditzy smile, while Nicholas Hoult’s flips between ruthless ruler and hilarious dimwit. A plethora of fleshed-out supporting characters bring depth to a show that could have so easily been a flash-in-the pan. Available to stream on Hulu (LW)
