I have never heard of this group of actors. This does not star Merle Streep or Tom Hanks in a title role. The soundtrack is not written nor sung by a rock star. And I seriously doubt if it will be nominated for a Golden Globe award, although this is exactly the type of motion picture drama presented in multiple parts on television that the Golden Globes describe themselves to be about honoring.
What an absolutely beautifully portrayed story of one of history's great love affairs. No fictional movie plot could possibly match the intrigue, romance, drama, and interpersonal relationships that are set forth by this cast of characters from real history. I remember studying the reign of Victoria in my college English History class. I DON"T remember the important personal interactions of these important leaders of their time.
If you are a fan of women's rights, then watch with awe as this young 18 year old queen manages her duty as the queen of the most powerful country in the world (18th century England), her growing family, the affairs of state, and her love relationship with her devoted husband. This is truly a masterpiece (Well Done - PBS - you should devote more of your efforts to works like this and less to politics).
If you haven't watched this, then stoop now and put it on your list. As for you AMAZON, thank you for making this outstanding series part of my PRIME membership, and sign me up for Season 2. I just renewed my PRIME membership as well.
