Victoria is a British Drama television series that first came out in 2016. It is a Masterpiece series that has appeared on PBS. For some background, please check out this article – Everything You Need to Know Before Watching Victoria over at www.pbs.org. I received a DVD copy of the complete first season of Victoria and one Moms Own Words reader will win a DVD copy as well!
I watched the first episode last night and fell in love with this series right away. The scenery at and outside of the Buckingham Palace set is beautiful. The costumes are amazing. Jenna Coleman, who plays the young Victoria is simply gorgeous and a very talented actress. This is the story of how she became queen at the tender age of 18 (about 1837) and her transformation from an impulsive girl to wife, mother and head of a global empire. Her adviser, played by Rufus Sewell is a fantastic actor. I feel his pain when he must resign from his roll as Prime Minister and adviser to Victoria. He is extremely handsome. He appears to have the best of intentions for his queen, but the tension between the two will take your breath away. He is older by 20+ years. Do I want to see them together? Yes! However, there is a much younger man (Tom Hughes) that will be coming into the story soon. If you liked Downtown Abbey, you will like Victoria as much if not more. It is chock full of love affairs, power struggles and unrequited love. What else could I ask for? 🙂
