Victoria comes to the throne at a time of great economic turbulence and resurgent republicanism – and died 64 years later the head of the largest empire the world had ever seen, having revitalised the throne's public image and become ‘grandmother of Europe'. The first series of Victoria, will tell the story of the first years of the reign, beginning with the moment of the Queen's accession in 1837, following her first faltering steps from capricious, hormonal teenager with a weak grasp on her duties and responsibilities to her marriage to Albert. The show is a saga of interlocking circles – the circuits of power in Buckingham Palace and Westminster, the intermarrying royal houses of Europe and the scandals of the below-stairs palace staff. At the centre stands the new Queen – a spirited, passionate woman who must, somehow, become an enduring icon of stability and strength.
Make no mistake — Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is our heroine, and we watch her fight to hang on to her power through ballrooms, staterooms, and royal chambers. The show offers an appreciation for an 18-year-old queen, as well as a surly glare at the institutions and men who tried to constrain her. [T]he character becomes a compelling protagonist because of Coleman’s tenacity at playing the teen queen and the sly magic she’s able to weave with the smallest shift in her face...The result is a show that’s very different and much pulpier than "The Crown" and its attendant elegance. It doesn’t wield the weight or depth of that Netflix gem, but depending on your appetite for royal camp, Victoria boasts plenty of moments where it’s far more deliciously fun.--Alex Abad-Santos, Vox, January 15, 2017
