VICTORIA ON MASTERPIECE
January 29, 2017  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

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. And Lord Melbourne (Rufus Sewell) is lurking to stall any budding romance, just in case. Check local listings.
