TV show description:
A historical drama from creator Daisy Goodwin, the Victoria TV show centers on Queen Victoria (Coleman). The series kicks in 1837, as the 18 year-old ascends to the British throne.
At the outset of her reign, Victoria grows close to her first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne (Sewell). Meanwhile, she must deal with the machinations of her mother, the Duchess of Kent (Flemming), and her advisor, Conroy (Rhys).
In order to separate herself from her mother and Conroy’s influence, the young monarch realizes she must marry. She soon begins a considered courtship with her first cousin, Prince Albert (Hughes), who will go on to become her husband and the father of her nine children.
The series examines the life of one of Britain’s most iconic queens, who would would reign for 63 years, as the entire world changed. Through scandal, love, loss, tragedy, and triumph, Victoria endures.
