The first official stills of Timothy Dalton (James Bond in the 1987 film The Living Daylights and 1989's Licence to Kill, both directed by John Glen) as Peter Townsend in the hit television series The Crown has been released by Netflix and he looks great.

Set in 1992, Episode 4 of The Crown Season 5, titled “Annus Horribilis,” tracks a year of strife and turmoil for the royal family: Queen Elizabeth (Imelda Staunton) watches as, one after another, each of her children’s marriages fall apart. Windsor Castle suffers heartbreaking damage from an accidental fire, and the monarchy’s popularity is at an all-time low. Meanwhile, Princess Margaret (Lesley Manville) takes a trip into her own past, reconnecting with old flame Peter Townsend (Timothy Dalton) after decades apart.

Lesley Manville talks about the scenes with Timothy Dalton:



“It felt very right. I think Timothy was extremely good casting.”
