ITV's Victoria stars Jenna Coleman as the young queen in her first years of a long reign...
This review contains spoilers.
Like a set of royal commemorative china advertised in the back pages of the Mail On Sunday, Victoria is a gleaming tribute to a certain idea of British history. Specifically, the idea of British history fictionalised in glossy Sunday night period dramas.

Uncomfortable truths about the age in question are either swept to one side or fashioned into anachronistic badges of honour worn by the heroes. (“Yes, Lady Walpole-Margate, he may be a shirt-lifter, but he’s also a damned fine valet and in England, we judge a man’s chracter by the shine on his master’s shoes” etc. »
