Victoria

Quotes (2)Most recently PBS show a t.v series on the life of Queen Victoria.  This possibly was an attempt to replace the highly popular “Downton Abbey”.  Do you think they succeed or failed?  I think it succeed it getting viewers interested in learning more about the life of Queen Victoria and her servant.  But I think it failed in some aspects of plot.

Upon and during the showing of the “Victoria” series I saw an increase in the amount of books and videos that were checked-out on the life of Victoria. I never got a chance to do a display but if I had the books & videos provided below would have been on that display.
