Judi Dench Calls for ‘The Crown’ to Use a ‘Fictionalized Drama’ Disclaimer
Judi Dench wrote in an open letter published Wednesday in of London that  ought to have a «fictionalised drama» disclaimer before the start of every episode as the series inches closer «to our present times.»The 87-year-old actress said that «no one is a greater believer in artistic freedom» than her but «this cannot go unchallenged.» She insists that «the closer the drama comes to our present times, the more freely it seems willing to blur the lines between historical accuracy and crude sensationalism.»Dench — who portrayed Queen Victoria in the 1997 film and 2017's, as well as Queen Elizabeth in 1998's — also wrote that «while many will recognise for the brilliant but fictionalized account of events that it is, I fear that a significant number of viewers, particularly overseas, may take its version of history as being wholly true.»She added that the «sensationalism» — that King Charles «plotted for his mother to abdicate, for example, or once suggested his mother’s parenting was so deficient that she might have deserved a jail sentence» -- is «cruelly unjust to the individuals and damaging to the institution they represent.» Dench was referring to former U.K. Prime Minister John Major (1990-1997), who responded over the weekend to rumors in the U.K. media that one of the plotlines in season 5 includes Prince Charles suggesting in 1991 he wanted Major's support to dethrone his mother.
