|Screen grab from ITV airing of Victoria series, Fair Use License|
In this podcast, we're talking about the ITV/PBS series, Victoria, which is based on the life of Queen Victoria. This season is airing in the U.S. before it airs in the U.K. and people in Britain are not happy about it. Do Americans just like the British royal family more than Brits, or is there another reason for its early broadcast in the United States? And just how factual is this series anyway? Was Queen Victoria actually as attractive as actress Jenna Coleman? Was Prince Albert as forward thinking as he is portrayed in this series, or was he more like his portrayal in Blackadder's Christmas Carol? So. Many. Questions! But, we're determined to get to the bottom of it. Tune in and then let us know if you watch this show, and if so, what you think about it.
