What in the world could take the place of "Downton Abbey" on Sunday nights on PBS? How about an eight part series on Queen Victoria? That sounds good to me! It looks as if this will be shown later this year in the U.K. but will shown in the USA sometime in 2017. Hey, I have to keep up with my British shows, don't you know and I think it is my duty to pass along things like this to you!
In the United States, we sometimes get shows years after they are shown in England, but sometimes we get them fairly quickly.
We just saw the last episode of "Endeavour" here whereas it was shown last winter, I think, in the U.K. (Love that series, by the way!)
It's funny, sometimes I will ask my in-laws in England about a particular show and they will have to think back, since it would have been shown there much earlier. Hey, it keeps them on their toes, they should thank me!
Queen Victoria was the longest reigning monarch but Queen Elizabeth just surpassed that mark recently. I have shown you this mosaic of Queen Elizabeth before...made from pieces of cloth, it was displayed in her honour for the Queen's 60th Jubilee from 2012. (It was at the C&H Fabrics in Eastbourne.)
Long live the Queen! And don't forget to watch out for "Victoria" in 2017
Where did Queen Victoria keep her armies?
Up her sleevies! HA! I got this from a Christmas Cracker!
