Storyline

Having resisted his profligate father's financial demands Albert goes to the Royal Society to meet computer pioneers Charles Babbage and the poet Byron's daughter Ada Lovelace, inviting them to a palace function. Victoria is suspicious of her husband's admiration for Ada and calls in her old mentor, former premier Lord Melbourne, who advises her that the relationship is based solely on scientific interests. Victoria and Albert are further reconciled when she tells him that she is pregnant again whilst in the servant's hall a young thief convinces assistant dresser Miss Cleary that there is a ghost on the premises.

Trivia

Charles Babbage designed two computing engines--the Difference Engine, and the far-more-complex Analytical Engine. Neither one was ever manufactured until a complete Difference Engine was built in 2002; though Babbage did build a small working model with a limited number of digits. Also, Ada Lovelace had no hand in designing Babbage's computing engines--she appears to be the first person to see their potential to do more than generate mathematical tables, and she wrote what is arguably the first computer program in anticipation of them, but the design of the hardware was Babbage's, not hers.

Goofs

When Lord Melbourne says that Byron "always looks as if every room belonged to him," he inexplicably uses present tense, despite the fact that Byron died in 1824, and this scene takes place in December 1840 or later. See more »

Quotes

[Lord Melbourne is sitting with leeches attached to his bare arm]
Country Doctor: With regular blood-letting, and a diet of beef tea and Brussels biscuits, I feel sure the headache and the weakness on the left side will dissipate.
Lord Melbourne: [looking at the leeches] Ugly brutes, aren't they? This one looks uncommon, like the Honourable Member for Bridlington.

Human Weakness
16 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The marriage begins to show signs of stress. Victoria is actually quite wise to the affairs of state. It is learned that thousands of soldiers died in the Khyber Pass, in an ambush by locals. Of course, they should never have been there, but the sun never set on the British Empire. Victoria sees this as a human tragedy where the politicians are more concerned with image and weakness. Meanwhile, Albert is a progressive, embracing the science and mathematics of the time. He admires a woman scientist/mathematician and Victoria embarrasses herself with her lack of knowledge of "pi." She wonders why so much attention is paid to kind of dessert. She becomes jealous of this woman. Meanwhile, Victoria goes to see her dear friend Lord Melbourne, whom she once loved, despite his station. She would know that this would anger Albert and the rest of the castle entourage, not to mention Peele. Also, she has some news that doesn't make her very happy. A bit of comic relief is added when a boy gets into the castle and begins pilfering food and other items. We also have the return of the cook, extorted into leaving his current post. Not happily, by the way.
