the royal treatment

i absolutely adore the actress victoria hamilton. i discovered her in 'lark rise to candleford', a series that is deeply re-watchable, and now i search for whatever dvd's are out there. one of the really good dramatizations based on the real life love story of queen victoria and her husband albert was made in 2001 and stars hamilton as the queen.

she became a queen at 18! her mother was a shrew! she married a very cool guy from germany! they had a lot of children...

hamilton is superb (i don't think she can be less) and the actor who plays albert is very handsome in a darker colin firth sort of way. guess why? it's colin kid brother.
