The sumptuous production has much to please the eye. By modern standards, it may seem a little slow moving and wordy, some of the cast under the mistaken impression they are on the stage, needing to project their voices to reach the back of the stalls. Such criticisms are trivial amidst so much that delights. Annette Crosbie's Victoria deservedly won a BAFTA. Robert Hardy as Albert is simply superb - he and others increasingly fine as their characters age. What a triumph for Timothy West as Edward! A special delight is Helen Ryan as Alexandra - the princess usually late except when giving birth. Movingly she is an extraordinarily tolerant wife, Edward's mistress invited to see him as his death nears.
Extra pleasures include early glimpses of now famous faces, credits confirming the sightings and revealing other names that surprise. (What a joy,too, to have credits that can actually be read!) Extras include commentaries and a very interesting Robert Hardy feature.
All in all, a right royal treat.
Timothy West makes for a marvellous Edward although I thought at the time, they could have let Charles Sturridge continue with playing the young Bertie a little longer as they kept Deborah Grant with Alix for one more episode.
The acting by Annette Crosbie is superlative. For me, she is the definitive Queen Victoria - her resemblance is remarkable. Robert Hardy made for an excellent Prince Albert. It is quite clear to see how much the Queen must have depended upon him and how his death affected her.
Christopher Neame as Kaiser made for a wonderfully wicked individual - torn between family loyalties and foreign ambition.
There are too many fine performances here by a wonderfully assembled cast with many names now sadly lost - John Gielgud, Michael Hordern (such a cuddly character in Gladstone!). Lovely to see Timothy West's own children taking part as the young George and Eddy; making for three generations of the West family acting in Royal dramas. Apparently Timothy West's own father Lockwood played Edward VII in "Guest of Honour" in "Upstairs Downstairs".
This is a series I have already watched three times on DVD since receiving it and as I said, my little 5 year old enjoys it and asks questions so I feel he's sort of getting a history lesson while being entertained. Can't get better than that!
