If you enjoyed and miss Downton Abbey, start watching the new television series Victoria and get ready to fight the urge to binge watch. What makes this series work even better than a fantastic series like Downton is that it does not require the flights of fancy of a group of writers who careen from one over the top unlikely tragedy to another to engage the viewer, but relies on the unfolding of history…with a measure of poetic licence.
The settings are rich - combining the sumptuousness of the wealthy royalty and aristocracy, the fresh beauty of a rural Britain with the dank dreariness of a pre modern age. The acting of the major and minor characters is superb. We get more than a bag of villains and heroes, rather we are treated to nuanced characters who feel real and are very entertaining.
Although we know that Victoria will rule for 63 years, produce a large family and survive her many childbirths and the challenges to her reign, the writers successfully create a tension with each crisis, making us fear for the young queen’s future. I imagine that if the real Queen Victoria could have seen this adaptation of her young life, she likely would have been amused.

So good! When I started watching the first episode I thought I wasn't going to like it very well, but I quickly fell in love with the series. I can't wait for season two!

I had high expectations from this series because I've watched the Queen Victoria movie with Emily Blunt and I absolutely loved it! This series is good, but not better than the movie. They focused more on the political side rather than the romantic style and as a romantic myself I was a little dissapointed by that. In the end, I really enjoy watching it. I hope there will be a season 2!

Well worth watching both for its entertainment value as well as its (mostly) historical accuracy.

I really, really liked this mini tv series. Many of you will compair it with The Queen, showing on Netflix, but please don't do that! Both tv series are just great in their own right.
