    Plot
    This landmark account of the life of one of history’s greatest monarchs continues as the Queen faces the very modern challenge of balancing a growing family with her marriage to Prince Albert and her work—all while being the ruler of the most powerful nation on earth. As Victoria’s reign continues into the 1840s, her Kingdom is witness to extraordinary events—constitutional crises and scandals at court, the rise of the Chartist movement, the devastating Irish Potato Famine, and Europe swept by revolution. As the saga unfolds ever vital moments in history, the Queen and Prince Albert must meet each public challenge while confronting profound personal changes.

    My Thoughts
    I was a fan of the first season and eagerly anticipated the release of the second on Blu-ray. This is an excellent dramatic series that reminds me a lot of Downton Abbey as it takes a peek behind the curtain of the ruling class as well as the servants who allow them to live in luxury. Jenna Coleman (Victoria) and Tom Hughes (Albert) have amazing chemistry and they make you believe they truly love each other. This season has some new characters that really liven up the story and I find it to be one of the better dramas on TV.

    Conclusion
    If you haven’t caught this show yet, be sure you do, especially if you enjoy historical dramas. The life of Victoria is simply amazing and she was definitely a woman who transcended time in the way that she ruled her Kingdom. Coleman is perfectly cast as the Monarch and the supporting players and their stories are extremely interesting. Highly recommended.
