“The heightened settings and exceptional casting clearly deserve top marks for this excellent series, which isn’t meant to be realistic on a story level, but manages to give us the illusion of it through the depth of its settings and characters.”
According to Winston Le Droumage (4/5):
“It’s a very good series, we discover moments in the history of the British monarchy, although some are pure fiction. The changes in the cast accompany the evolution of the characters very well over time.”

Season 4 marked a turning point in the series when Diana Spencer – the future Princess of Wales – became the main character of the program.
While season 4 dealt with her early romance with Prince Charles and their fairytale marriage, season five dealt with the erosion of their marriage and ended with their divorce.
The first episodes of Season 6 follow the last days of Diana’s life, leading up to her tragic fatal car accident under the Pont de l’Alma in Paris.

According to Lia (5/5):
“An effective Brazilian detective series with noticeable exoticism and a change from the American series of the same genre. The script is not very original, but overall well executed, with good action scenes and the protagonist is particularly charismatic. Good, good. – Burnt entertainment and also inspired by real events.”
According to Harry648 (3/5):
“A rather disappointing series with its countless implausibilities. The script is incredible, the actors do not always satisfy and above all I did not really get into the story. Romulo Braga, the main actor, is very annoying with his attitude of being robbed alive. The incessant “flashbacks” with a teammate killed during an operation in the prison quickly It’s annoying. I rated it a 3 because I watched this series all the way through anyway.”

AlloCiné Viewer Rating: 3.6/5

“A good mini doc…not too short and not too long…it can easily be watched as a thriller…we realize that the richest woman in the world was surrounded by inconsistencies…we also realize that despite her wealth. Still something was missing – like true intangible love – and that she was not completely happy in life… In short, she was a vulnerable woman and many took advantage of this… We also see how the ultra-rich families manage. Their money through the use of tax havens, political bribery and more…“
According to Simon Bernard (3/5):
“The mini-series has the strengths of being based on real-life recordings and interesting testimonies from various (but not all) stakeholders. Unfortunately, there is a strong tendency towards witness commentary and repeats out loud, which makes the viewing a bit linear. The short format is quite relevant and should be remembered for other similar cases.“
