The ambitious eight-part drama follows the early life of Queen Victoria, from her accesion to the throne at the tender age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years, and was our longest-serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II on 9th September this year. Rufus Sewell stars as Lord Melbourne, Victoria’s first prime minister. The two immediately connected and their intimate friendship became a popular source of gossip that threatened to destabilise the Government – angering both Tory and Whigs alike.

After a very slow start (the first two, pre-Albert episodes were a tough slough) the series has blossomed, and, having just finished episode 7 of 9, I've given it a 9 (superb) out of 10. Jenna Louise Coleman is radiant as she transforms from shy young girl, to feisty young monarch - as the duchess says, "it seems the queen has learned how to get her own way." For Doctor Who fans, there will be no surprise as to what she brings to inhabit a role. Those in the UK are enjoying the series on ITV, and those in North America can look forward to it as a PBS Masterpiece Theatre selection for January.
