Set in London, this romantic comedy centres around a young woman named Kate (Emilia Clark). After a string of bad luck, Kate accepts a job as one of Santa’s elves in a Christmas-themed shop that stays open throughout the year. She meets Tom, played by Henry Golding, while on the job and a relationship – that shouldn’t work on paper – develops. Emma Thompson and Michelle Yeoh also star.
While season 2 of the popular series ended with the Profumo affair in 1963, this season will focus on the next decade including the economic downturn and the rise of fierce nationalism, as well the evolving relationships within the royal household. The roles of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh have been taken over by Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies, while Helena Bonham Carter takes over as Princess Margaret.
