Victoria is the landmark account of the early years on the throne of one of Britain’s greatest queens. Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) plays Victoria, taking her first faltering steps from capricious, hormonal teenager to respected monarch. Central to the drama is the scandalous friendship between Victoria and her first prime minister Lord Melbourne (BAFTA nominated Rufus Sewell; The Man in the High Castle), and the romance with her cousin Prince Albert (Tom Hughes; The Game).
|1||HDVideoDoll 123||First in an eight-part series about the life of Queen Victoria. On the death of her uncle King William IV in 1837, 18-year-old Princess Victoria becomes queen. Her mother the Duchess of Kent, influenced by her advisor Sir John Conroy, tries to exert control over the young monarch. Victoria copes with the unknown with the help of prime minister Lord Melbourne. They are enchanted by each other - Victoria by the older man's erudite wisdom and experience, and he by the young queen's lack of guile. Gossip soon erupts over the closeness of their relationship and Melbourne, fearing scandal, retreats. Victoria is left prey to Conroy, who seizes the chance to take control and undermine the queen. Against Melbourne's instructions, Victoria rushes into an ill-considered accusation and the celebration of her coronation is abruptly curtailed when she learns she has involved the crown in scandal.||1:10:23||£2.49||View in iTunes|

The programme itself is amazing. It's very fast pace but thoroughly enjoyable. I assume the £17 will be for the whole 8 part series. Each episode is £2.49!
However I agree that this can be watched for free on ITV catchup service.
Excellent TV show, well worth the money.
The worst acting I have ever seen for a production that cost so much, add on the horrible story lines, it's basicly a copy of Downton Abbey with Queen Victoria dragged in to get viewers interested. In one sentence I can describe what I felt watching this; "You know its bad when Jenna Coleman is the best actor in the entire production".
