Prince Philip played by Doctor Who’s Matt Smith? Erm, where can we sign up to watch this ASAP?

Netflix UK has released the first look at its new 10-part series dramatising the early years of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s marriage in a brand new historical drama, The Crown.

The series was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Daldry and stars Wolf Hall actress Claire Foy as the Queen, aged 25, newly married and trying to get to grips with her new role as ruler of Britain.

Matt Smith makes his return to telly as her husband Philip while iconic American TV star John Lithgow plays Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

The entire series will be available to stream on Netflix UK later this year.
