Review quotes: "Aenne Barr is a splendidly regal Elizabeth, controlled, dignified and vulnerable", "Aenne Barr's Elizabeth is the real gem here, subtle, showing little moments of victory and defeat, towering when triumphant and shaken to her core when struck. It's a performance befitting a queen", "Aenne Barr's portrayal of the ruler is well achieved in a subtle and nuanced performance", "Barr’s Professor Coppola perfectly embodies the mad scientist trope without being crass", "Barr is perfection as Coppola"
