The Great season 3 opens with Catherine and Peter trying to patch things up, but getting over the odd clump of hair in the imperial plughole isn't the same as making peace with an attempted assassination gone awry.

Catherine, typically attuned to her husband's sensitivities, is trying – perhaps not quite as hard as she could be, but trying nonetheless – to smooth things over and make a go of things, but it's not her fault that Peter's a hapless manchild completely unsuited to a grownup relationship, let alone ruling over the largest landmass on the planet.

Better to get back to a cause that's worthy of her attention: revolutionising and modernising Mother Russia!

Despite making a name for herself abroad, however, Catherine remains a figure of mistrust and superstition at home, with attempts at benevolent reform blowing up in her face. Undermined and expertly manipulated by Archie at every turn, will she stick to her guns or will the reign of Russia's greatest empress be cut down before its prime?

Occasionally faithful to history but always outrageous, read on as we explain how to watch The Great season 3 free online and from anywhere. All 10 episodes are available now in the US and Australia.
