      i'd seen this on pbs and loved the chemistry between jenna coleman & rufus sewell. don't know how accurate historically it is, but just loved the romance between Victoria and Melbourne. the restraint, the positions they were in, so doomed. I loved the way he would step in to help her, the spark, the flowers, etc. there isn't that much chemistry between Victoria & Albert, who are supposed to be very much in love w/each other. it may be that I just think rufus sewell is hot. but I bought the dvd just coz I loved jenna & rufus together, the other stories going on, Victoria is interesting, being thrust so young as queen, the whole experience she must have gone through. she's self assured & was amused this first season. great dvd to watch on a weekend afternoon when you want something romantic and fragile, & a bit tragic. was jolting the switch to albert, but that's the way it was.

      I have several movie versions regarding the life of Queen Victoria and Albert. So I was very excited to see PBS Masterpiece doing this series. As soon as I was able I purchased this as I had missed a number of the episodes on Sunday nights. So I already knew I would love the series. Jenna Coleman Sewell is wonderful as Victoria - I look forward to seeing more of her. Rufus Sewell was very good as Lord Melbourne - I have always enjoyed Sewell and was not disappointed. The surprise for me was Tom Hughes as Albert. I had never heard of him, but I will certainly be looking for him in the future. I found myself wrapped up in their very believable lives as portrayed by PBS Masterpiece. They always get an A+ from me for these types of series. I am really looking forward to the following 2 seasons to come! It can't be too soon for me.

      Great British series

      As a British TV series, "Victoria" retains the British tradition of great acting and great visuals. It's not as subtle in character portrayal as "Downton Abbey," but it's close. It has more of a romantic flavor than "Downton Abbey" with the first season concerned mostly with the romantic inclinations of the young Queen Victoria, age 18 to about 21. Jenna Coleman as Victoria is youthful radiance. The second half of this first season portrays well the attraction, interaction and devotion between Victoria and her German husband Prince Albert. As a history lesson this first season shows how strong the German influence was on the British crown in the 1800s.

      Victoria: The Complete First Season dazzles as it constructs, establishes, and explores its characters and world. The era is richly realized, from costumes to locations, and the performances are first-rate. The show may not engage audiences looking for violence, but for viewers fascinated by the era and characters Victoria impresses on all fronts and leaves audiences eager for season two. PBS' Blu-ray boasts good, if not occasionally troubled, video, a quality lossless soundtrack, and several interesting and basically supportive supplements. Highly recommended.

      Very Good Period Piece

      Victoria season one is a very good period piece. The writing, acting and direction are top rate. With the exception of a few things, like a character in one of the episodes that says to another character.."just sayin...", which should have been better written or at least edited out by the director, this was very good work. The other issues found are minor and would act as spoilers so I will not mention them here but they do not detract from the overall fine work done on this period piece.

      I have always been fascinated with the Royals, and Queen Victoria is right up there with the very best. SEASON ONE proves to capture Victoria's first experiences as a young queen and what she endured and had to muster through all the politics and protocol of the era. It's a wonderful retelling of a young woman who takes charge, relished and grew strong in her independence, and became one of the most enduring women in history. I cannot wait to see the subsequent series and learn more about this great lady.

      Highly Entertaining British Drama

      I enjoyed Downton Abbey so when this show came on PBS I thought I'd give it a shot. I immediately fell in love with it and bought the Blu Ray because I didn't want to wait to watch the rest of the season. It's frustrating that many of the good show on TV are British and run such short seasons. Maybe American TV should take a hint less quantity more quality! If you like historical dramas or you want to see how tough it was to be a young queen this show is for you
