We're alike in that respect. Set the ambiance of where we are to suit the ambiance of the program we're watching.

I've done that so many times with books too. Totally tuned out a ringing telephone because I was so engrossed in the 11th century.

Is this going to be dragged on and on throughout V's life? Because I think that one season was enough. Its not tat Vic isn't an interesting character but the way they've done this series has been too drawn out.

I believe there is ample room for more than one season as they have only barely explored Queen Victoria's children (only Victoria, Princess Royal, has been born so far), or her marital life with Prince Albert. If the series goes on, however, past the 1850s, they will probably have to recast Victoria as they are planning to do with Elizabeth in The Crown, I suppose.

The history of the Victorian age is very rich with a succession of iconic prime ministers and several major world events as well as milestones for the British Empire and (future) Dominions specifically. So there is plenty of material to be covered in the series. I would advise the writers to stick with the "Young Victoria" formula though and have at most three seasons only.

I for one am delighted that there will be more then just one season for it peaked my interest so much in Victoria that I went out and searched for some good books on her to learn more about her and her time in history. I find there is so much to learn yet about this time in the British history and it is every interesting. This site TRF is such a wealth of info for all royal watchers, live history of a family and government in the making all the time.
Way to go TRF........

Apparently Dame Diana is playing the Duchess of Bucchleuch who is the new Mistress of the Robes. Apparently the real Duchess was in her 30s when she became Mistress of the Robes.

The Christmas Special wasn't a ratings hit and struggled up against UK Soap EastEnders, attracting just 2.7m viewers despite getting good reviews.

Victoria, Christmas Special 2017 was a welcome gift for us all: review

Just watched the 2nd Season Finale. I thought I wouldn’t like this drama, but I’m officially hooked. Jenna Coleman brought a young Queen Victoria to life again. All the actors brought these people back to life. I truly enjoyed this drama and I’m looking forward to season 3.

Also, I love that Sarah Forbes Bonetta was added to the storyline. She was a young princess that we don’t hear about at all. So it was a real treat to see her factual portrayal and that Queen Victoria treated her with such dignity and had sympathy for Sarah’s horrible situation.

Yes, and the theory of Victoria and Albert having had some pre marital sex is also...interesting though IMO not very likely!
