Readers of The Mirror have voted that The Crown should not carry a fiction warning at the start of every episode.
Some critics and royal commentators have argued that the Netflix royal drama should carry a disclaimer at the start of each episode to make clear that the series is a fictional drama, which the streaming giant has rejected.
However, in a recent survey conducted by The Mirror into audience views on the drama’s fourth reason, the majority were also against such a warning.
56% voted ‘No’ to the question ‘Should The Crown carry a fiction warning at the start of every episode?’, while 38% answered ‘Yes’ and 6% answered ‘Don’t Know’.
Elsewhere, 80% of respondents said that the series did not change their view of the Royal Family, compared to 20% who said it did.
62% of respondents answered ‘No’, while 31% answered ‘Yes’, and 7% said that they ‘Don’t Know’.
On average, the Mirror readers’ rating for season 4 was at 3.8 out of 5 stars, with the majority at 47% giving the run of episodes the full 5 stars.
It appears that Mirror readers, on the whole, agree with cast members and Netflix that the series does not need a disclaimer.
Regardless, the debate is still likely to rage on, especially with two more seasons on the way.
The Crown season 4 is available now on Netflix.
