Excellent call

Definitely a classic. (I should mention GC has Elizabeth R available if anyone missed it 35 years ago) Still hard to beat.

Elizabeth R

Until we see where Cate Blanchett takes the role in the followup to Elizabeth, I'd have to go with Glenda Jackson in the 1971 BBC series, Elizabeth R.
