Follows Victoria from the time she becomes Queen in 1837 at the age of 18, through her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Famous for her candor and spirit, she was the first woman who seemed to have it all: a passionate marriage, nine children, and the job of being Queen of the world's most important nation.
Phenomenal series. While she is much more beautiful than the real Queen Victoria, this series is simply dashing. The wardrobe and backdrop is spot on. Gorgeous horses including Freisians, thoroughbreds, warmbloods and draft horses can be seen regularly. I even spotted a Dutch Harness Horse and about passed out.
The actor that portrays Prince Albert (Tom Hughes) looks like a white PRINCE (the musician) in this series. It is crazy and apparently I am not the only one to notice this. Wonderful acting by everyone. A must watch series.
Ah well, it is been a while now, that I watched the first season, but I will dive in a second time. An almost brilliant depiction of Queen Victoria and her era. The British have a neck for TV-shows like this one, very well acted, written and produced. Minor flaws are negligible and do not ruin the experience. If you want an abysmal take on a similar period (pun intended), take a shot with “Another Period”. I know that the latter is supposed to be a comedy, but still the point stands. Victoria matured (the show, not Jenna Coleman) and all the cast fit nicely into their roles. A worthwhile way to “waste” some time.
With my love for period dramas I was bound to give this one too a try. I loved it! The atmosphere, the stories from above and below the stairs are so intriguing and the casting is brilliant. The chemistry between Victoria and Albert proves the casting director a genius! A wonderful production all-round! Well done!
Love this show. I started watching these kind off shows recently & they are all good. I also suggest Reign a series on Netflix and Henry & his 7 wife's & Cleopatra. I was never into history but I like these programmes as show it in a good way so learning something while I watch these kind off shows. I hope they make more.
I only watched season 1 but I love the dynamic between Victoria and Albert and the cinematography, costumes, and sets are phenomenal. The script is a bit exhausting but I'm glad it sticks to source fairly well based off of Victoria's diaries.
