The Wanted dead and alive schrodinger’s Cat vintage shirt transformation undertaken by Anderson is particularly striking; you won’t see shades of X-Files favorite Dana Scully or Sex Education’s wry sex therapist, Dr. Jean Milburn, within her interpretation of Thatcher. Equal parts steely and maternal, the duality of her persona is explored throughout the season. Despite the complexities, Thatcher’s story could feel rote in lesser hands. She is, after all, one of the most discussed and divisive political figures of the 20th century. But Anderson brought new layers to the Iron Lady.
