Wonderful cast and scenery! The production is lavish and the actual story-line so poor it's straight out of a harlequin romance! If you like trash you will love this inaccurate portrayal of a woman who earned the right for her true story to be told. If you love beautiful period costumes and great houses just turn down the sound. It unbearable to listen to the tripe and untruths
I've seen half of the series only, but appalled with the story-line and misrepresentation of Victoria's alliance with the Prime Minister who was 40 years her senior. There is no proof they were linked by any more than a mentor relationship. There are other inaccuracies and I expect a whole slew in the next 4 episodes.
This show was wildly popular in GB and a second series is being made, but I won't be watching. I like my historical women to be the strong women they were, not the simpering child Victoria has been reduced to. Additionally, I like the facts to be presented, not the made up version of a novelist.
