THIRTEEN has scheduled a smashing lineup of British programs on Sundays in December.
In the Season 3 finale, Victoria comes to the rescue and Albert enjoys a great success.
One thread to follow in this week’s Victoria episode is bait – or to use a more posh term: temptation. Who dangles it out of self-interest, and who nibbles it off the hook? Feodora has been baiting Albert and Victoria…
The episode “A Coburg Quartet” crescendos to a huge head trip for our royals. Crowns, tiaras and bumps on the head play significant roles.
In the Victoria episode “A Show of Unity,” the operative word in the title is “show.” What is sincere, and what is just for show? On the surface, Victoria and Albert look like The Great Love Story, the perfect couple…
There are many love stories that end with “and they lived happily ever after,” but there’s no drama in that, is there? RIP.
The royal “island getaway” left the song “Margaritaville” strumming in our heads. Feodora’s family crest must be a shark fin circling.
With postpartum depression pushing her defenses down, Queen Victoria’s biggest battle may be between her inner strength and self-doubt.
How can a pregnant Queen Victoria feel safe in The Year of Revolutions? She doesn’t even feel easy about the arrival of her half-sister Feodora, who has fled Europe.
Historical figures, politics and sweets – the truths and the dramatic licenses taken in the PBS series Victoria.
What’s it like on the set of the drama Victoria? A behind-the-scenes tour on filming day with THIRTEEN’s British Telly Dish blogger.
Titled Comfort and Joy, the season finale doesn’t hold much of either! Our cast of characters go through a lot of tsuris to get to something better than gloomy. This episode made me think that maybe the conflict between Albert and Victoria is the different ways they look back on their miserable childhoods.
This week, a palace servant was bold enough to speak to a guest of Queen Victoria, and to Victoria herself, about the effects of the potato famine on her family in Ireland. Sometimes desperation gives you courage, no matter what the cost.
Victoria, Albert and companions journey to France and learn quite a bit about the fashions and habits of the French court. Can Victoria’s diplomacy convince King Louis Philippe to stay out of the affairs of Spain?
If you did not cry at least twice during this episode of Victoria, you are made of soap stone.
