She was, apart from our current Queen, the oldest ever British monarch, living to the age of 81.

And she was also the youngest ever British (as opposed to English or Scottish) monarch, coming to the throne as a girl of eighteen.

We get to see her tenacity blossom as she matures and literally grows into the monarchy. Blunt's performance is strong, Julian Fellowes' writing is not at the level of his previous work in Gosford Park.The second strand concerns the growing romance between Victoria and her German cousin Prince Albert, and the attempts of King Leopold of Belgium, who was uncle to both of them, to influence this romance.(Leopold's hope was to increase the prestige of the House of Saxe-Coburg, to which both he and Albert belonged).Their leader Robert Peel is shown as statesmanlike and dignified, whereas Melbourne, for all his dash and charm, is shown as devious and uninterested in social reform.There may be some truth is these characterisations, but Fellowes glosses over the fact that only a few years earlier the Tories had opposed the Reform Act, which ended the corrupt electoral system of rotten boroughs, and that they had benefited from William IV's unconstitutional dismissal of a Whig administration.
