Where did he come from?

The show is filled with well-known actors, but there was one actor who was new to me. His name is Tim McMullan, and he played the Dean of Windsor in season three. I have never seen this actor before, but now that I have, I know he will be on my radar from here on out.

What can we learn from him?

The first thing we learn from Tim McMullan is that he is a versatile actor. He has taken on many different roles and played them with the same grace and elegance that The Crown deserves. He was perfect as Robin Woods, the Dean of Windsor at the University of Oxford and Queen Elizabeth II’s personal chaplain.

His Story Arc in Season Three

Robin Woods is a minor character for the most part, but he does have his own story arc. In Season Three, he becomes Dean of Windsor and is tasked with planning the coronation. He has to deal with King George VI’s death and Queen Elizabeth II’s ascension to the throne during this time.

Robin Woods is an interesting character because he isn’t a political figurehead like King George VI or Queen Elizabeth II.
