The budget may not be the biggest on this period drama, and some of the writing and characterization is overly obvious as well – but the leading performance by Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria makes up for all of that, and more. Tonight, her new Queen gets courted by the oddball Prince Albert (Tom Hughes), with a series of encounters that are more like verbal jousts than royal flirtations.
