VICTORIA - Drama - The early life of Queen Victoria, from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18 to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.

Masterpiece - Victoria

Victoria is both a comedic and a romantic drama. The series depicts a young female monarch attempting to balance her duty while coming of age.

Empires and fortunes rise and fall, but a strong family can withstand anything — that is the central message of Downton Abbey. Downton Abbey's aristocratic Crawley clan and their staff muddle through the sweeping social changes that define the years between 1912 and 1925. Even the queen couldn’t resist Downtonmania. She reportedly enjoyed watching the series and pointing out the historical inaccuracies.

ROADKILL - Drama - A riveting four-episode political thriller starring Hugh Laurie.


Roadkill focuses more on the inner workings of U.K. politics, rather than on the royal family. It’s a moody, incisive look at the U.K. government, press and tabloids, which even the least active royal watcher knows have a strong relationship with, and thus a major impact on, the British royal family, despite the monarch’s political neutrality. Roadkill has some really remarkable performances and a killer soundtrack, making this show a hidden gem.
