Jenna Coleman wows viewers as young Queen Victoria

By  | 

Jenna Coleman will have plenty to celebrate tonight after fans deemed her “perfectly cast” and “exquisite” as the young queen in ITV’s Victoria.

The former Doctor Who star impressed viewers so much that there wasn’t a negative comment about her performance to be seen on Twitter.

Jenna Coleman proving how wasted she was in Dr Who. Superb Actor. #Victoria

#Victoria is such a great show, nothing like I normally watch. But Jenna Louise Coleman is fantastic #sassyvictoria

The drama also sparked some serious costume envy.

Love period drama costumes, why dont we dress like that any more? #Victoria

The costumes in #Victoria are something else. Superb Sunday night viewing @ITV!

Really fancy one of those nighties. They look so comfy #victoria

Of course, there were a few gripes, with historical inaccuracy and the quality of the CGI at the top of the list.

Not sure how historically accurate it is that Lord Melbourne wore trousers that give him such a big cameltoe #Victoria

Why do they always get religion wrong on historical drama? #Victoria would not have prayed mercy on her uncle's soul – RC prayer

I have issues with the historical inaccuracies in #Victoria. Everyone knows V had no interest in Lord Melbourne due to her diaries…

I’m loving #Victoria though the CGI is bobbins and the number of ad breaks disruptive. Beautifully filmed & styled though.

@angegarrod The CGI in #Victoria looks like a game from 10 years ago

— Zero Cruel (@zerocruel) August 28, 2016

Only thing to let this down is some terribly executed CGI #Victoria
