I must say, I'm pretty stunned at how successful this series has been. I expected it to be thoroughly trampled by Poldark which is on BBC1 at the same time but it's really held its own.

I've found friends and colleagues talking about it, despite being uninterested in royalty generally. It's not 100% faithful to the historical reality, of course, but then it's never claimed to be.

I have seen the first episode as a start of bingewatching but I am not impressed. It came nowhere close to the quality of Mrs Brown or the mise-en-scene of Downton Abbey.

I saw factual errors, the crown used for the Coronation looks like the one you can buy in the carnival shop. The characters of Kent, Conroy and Sussex are more sketchy than really worked-out.

I will see the second episode tonight. I hope it will be improved otherwise I will start for another series to bingewatch. That series War & Peace was a huge let-down as well. The French series Versailles is still awaiting for me.

How ITV lost chance of a royal hit at Christmas: Bosses turned down the chance of a Victoria special because they didn't think it would be popular.
