At the age of 8, I sneakily watched this bent double and peaking through the sitting room door at home and was rapt; nearly thirty years on it has the same effect on me, albeit with viewing in more comfortable circumstances! OK the production may be a little dated, but the performances of Annette Crosbie, Robert Hardy, Felicity Kendall for starters and a host of other actors & actresses who have since then become household names are totally brilliant (I noticed the name of Charles Sturridge on the credits who played the young Bertie and later went on to direct Brideshead Revisted). The portrayals, in particular those of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (having watched the first three episodes this time around), seem so authentic that this is how one imagine's they might have been in real life
