What I thought Downton Abbey did well was historically accurate clothing. I also thought Wolf Hall did a good job with that aspect too. The one show where was glaring so wrong was the White Queen which is set even earlier than the Tudor period but the costumes and the exposed hair for the ladies drove me nuts watching it.

The poor people in America like me have to wait until January to watch Victoria on PBS, but at least we are getting Poldark Season 2 in Sept.

I'm really enjoying the series but there are a few big mistakes that make me a cringe a little. The biggest error I've noticed was in the last episode when the character they're calling 'the Grand Duke' (the future Alexander II of Russia) said he was being forced to marry a Danish girl. Well, the real life Alexander II married Marie of Hesse and By Rhine of course so I think they got the wrong Tsar. Which is a bit sloppy and lazy. But otherwise, it's a pleasant enough watch.

Everyone is talking about this series atm. Mostly wishing that history could be changed and that Queen Victoria could have married Lord M!

I've been trying so hard to be good and to not watch this until it airs in the US because I want to watch it at the same time as my friends but it's tough- it looks great.

But I'll probably appreciate it even more in front of a roaring fire during the January snow :)

Albert is such a dull, stiff guy. Has no charisma and zero chemistry with Jenna Coleman/Victoria.

IMDB lists 17 locations Victoria (TV Mini-Series 2016) - Filming Locations - IMDb.
But Castle Howard and Harewood House seem to be featured.

The Harewoods, of course, are cousins of the Queen through their mother Princess Mary who was Princess Royal before Anne.

This picture already completely put me off. It screams fake plastic to me, that wobbly thing on her head. Is it really so difficult to make a good copy???? Even the colour of the velvet does not come close!

The copy: picture

I really like the series. Jenna Coleman is very pretty woman, and actor playing Lord M. is handsome and plays his role perfectly. I like V&M chemistry. I don't really see this kind of chemistry between Victoria and Albert.
I also like theme song, very haunting.
