Victoria Season 1 Review

15 January 2017 1:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes was provided prior to broadcast.

One of the downsides to living in the new Golden Age of Television is that some shows, decent in their own right, will inevitably suffer in comparison to the best of the best.

I fear that may be the fate of Victoria, which has its U.S. premiere later tonight. The show presents inevitable comparisons to Netflix’s The Crown in its tale of one of England’s most famous queens, at times rising to the challenge of its competitor, and at other times, falling a bit short.

The series opens at the very beginning of Victoria’s famous reign. King William is dead and his niece, Alexandrina Victoria (Jenna Coleman), a girl of eighteen, will ascend to the throne. She’s lived a sheltered and inexperienced life at Kensington, reared under the strict oversight of her mother, the Duchess of Kent (Catherine Flemming »

Starring “Doctor Who” alum Jenna Coleman, “Victoria” traces the monarch’s time from the age of accession at 18 through her long and tumultuous reign that included her passionate marriage to Prince Albert, increased expansion of the British Empire, and becoming a national icon.

Dubois Records, in cooperation with Mammoth Screen and Masterpiece will release the Victoria – Original Soundtrack digitally on all music streaming platforms to coincide with the Us release of the television series on PBS this coming weekend.

Victoria was first aired on ITV in the UK on August 28, 2016.

Phipps says: “The idea was to give Victoria a dynamic voice, an explosive theme through which we could rejoice in her strength & courage. The Mediaeval Baebes were the perfect sound for this. With one foot in the classical world & one in the commercial, they gave Victoria the mixture of refinement & attitude I was after.”

Barrett says: “I started composing from episode 2, weaving in some of Martin »

TV Review: ‘Victoria’ on PBS Masterpiece

11 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We must not let in daylight upon magic,” British essayist Walter Bagehot once wrote of the English monarchy, and Queen Victoria in particular.

“Victoria,” which is based on a novel about the famous monarch, doesn’t just bathe its subjects in golden daylight; there’s plenty of evocative candlelight, too. “Victoria” depicts life behind the scenes in a series of well-appointed palaces and lush gardens, but would-be Bagehots have nothing to fear: Admirers of Queen Victoria could hardly hope for a more flattering portrait. The problem with that romantic — and romanticized — approach is that this Masterpiece miniseries can get so bogged down in admiration for its core character that it begins to meander, and it often sands the edges off conflicts surrounding the early years of the young queen’s reign.

The result is a miniseries that’s easy on the eyes and generally more interesting when capable actors like Jenna Coleman, who »

Amazon broke the news with a YouTube video, which oddly hasn't been made available in the UK. At the time of writing, all we have to go on is Collider's description of the clip.

Apparently, it shows Rufus Sewell's John Smith and Chelah Horsdal's Helen (who's pregnant in the scene) watching the Nazi atomic bomb land in Washington. »

3 January 2017 7:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans of The Man in The High Castle will be pleased by the news that Amazon has ordered a third season of their hit original drama. Furthermore, they have also named Bosch‘s Eric Overmyer as the new showrunner in the wake of previous showrunner Frank Spotnitz’s exit from the show.

Dick’s 1962 novel which imagines the Axis powers winning World War II, with Germany conquering most of America while Japan controls the country’s West coast.

Frank Spotnitz developed the adaptation, but left amid rumours of tension with Amazon in the middle of the second season’s production. This left the existing production team to carry on without a proper showrunner, but now that Overmyer has been named as »
