for anyone who has ever read or studies Queen Victoria and her reign, there's absolutely NO new information in this show. i was very disappointed because the "secrets" in the title alluded to something that isn't already well known.
A concise & informative biography that I wish I’d viewed prior to the PBS series ‘Victoria’. The biography is a very good overview of Queen Victoria’s life from infancy to death. It’s also an interesting behind-the-scenes tour; providing fascinating aspects of her life and the Era she defined.

I just finished watching the Victoria series on PBS and wanted to find out more info. It was great to fill in some of the gaps, but would have liked it to be a bit longer. I will say that her daughter Beatrice burning the Queens diaries is appalling to me. They could have given us a lot more information.

It was fine enough. But seriously when it got to ~mention~ the life in Ireland at the time it said that there were “years of crop failure” in lieu of describing what was going on. The topic is very complex but I’m sorry that’s not a great starting point. If this is a historic representation then we should be mentioning at least the peoples — Irish but also Indian, Chinese and so many others — that were hurt by her reign. Yes she is a product of her time but this is misinformation if context isn’t given.
