Alternate Versions

Series 1: PBS Masterpiece broadcasts add on average 5 minutes of additional footage per episode not shown in the ITV broadcasts. The exception to this are the first two episodes of Series 1 which for PBS airing were edited together to form a single feature-length episode for a two-hour timeslot; the edited version removes several minutes of footage from these episodes (including the original closing moments of episode 1). The North American DVD/Blu-ray release of Series 1 is the ITV version and thus does not include the extra footage seen on PBS. Also, the ITV broadcasts/DVD release indicate episode numbers in the opening credits alongside episode titles; this is not shown on PBS. See more »

User Reviews

 
Rather captivating, I loved it. Every inch a Queen.
28 August 2016 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I have eagerly anticipated this mini series ever since Jenna left Doctor Who and announced she was to play the famous Monarch. Period dramas have been hit and miss of late, we've had Jericho, War and Peace, Doctor Thorne etc, I'll leave you consider which were hits.

I knew from watching her Doctor Who journey that she'd be an actress capable of leading a drama and doing justice to a huge historical figure, I love her portrayal of Victoria, she has some presence and a definite strength of character. Rufus Sewell I thought was exceptional as Lord Melbourne too, the complex relationship the pair had in real life was explained very well.

The settings, costumes, and general production values were first rate, the show felt incredibly plush and lavish, I shudder to think of the budget for this series.

Totally engaging, this was first rate viewing 9/10.
