Queen’s day of mar­ried bliss

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE -

Vic­to­ria, ABC, Satur­day at 7.30pm

FEEL­ING suf­fo­cated af­ter re­peated as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempts led to in­creased se­cu­rity at the Palace, Vic­to­ria seeks es­cape to the land she fan­ta­sised about as a child: the Scot­tish High­lands.

How­ever, it isn’t the ro­man­tic re­treat she has read about in her Wal­ter Scott nov­els, and she be­gins to re­alise that, wherever she is in the world, she can’t es­cape the fact that she is Queen.

When a day out takes an un­ex­pected turn, Vic­to­ria (Jenna Cole­man, pic­tured) fi­nally gets the anonymity she wished for, while Al­bert en­joys be­ing able to play the role of a tra­di­tional hus­band for the first time.

But the hol­i­day has to end even­tu­ally and, with the sound of bag­pipes ring­ing in their ears, Vic­to­ria and her court must re­turn to Lon­don and face re­al­ity.
