Is anyone watching Victoria on PBS?

I like it.  At least there is  something helping us going through withdrawals of Downton Abbey.

@DowntonAbbey

 

Yes, I am watching it right now! I'm aligned with your thought about missing Downton Abbey. 

 

Loved the results of the melting tallow scenes!  Costumes are excellent and thank goodness we don't have hair styles like these!  Braids yes, but not looped around the ears.

I don't have withdrawal from Downton because I know there is always another great series on the horizon on Masterpiece.  I see a few are returning and new ones too.  I have been watching Masterpiece Theater since the seventies and have rarely been disappointed in a series and never in the superb acting and sets.  

 

I enjoyed Victoria and look forward to Mercy Street returning next Sunday.  Masterpiece is one of the few shows which always holds my interest and attention.  Enjoy!

I liked it although after the first hour I was ready for something else.

 

I really doubt they can out do Downton.

Boring.  Won't be tuning in again.  I found the cast rather unwatchable as well.

Watched it and enjoyed it.  Just wondering- how factual is it?  And will be interesting to see how they age her.  Queen Victoria was not an attractive older lady.  And a previous poster mentioned a book - is there a book?
