Victoria on Masterpiece Theater
It was on PBS at 9PM last night. A beautiful costume drama. The costumes were really good, upper class Brits all dressed up for court. The story picked up with Victoria's accession to the throne at age 18. She has very firm ideas about who is in charge, she doesn't defer to her mother, her mother's boyfriend, prime ministers, and other members of the aristocracy. Nice acting, a good watch. It ran for two hours which is a little long for me, one hour episodes are more to my taste. Anyhow I plan to watch it again next Sunday.
