Previously on Victoria: As Peel fights the battle of his career in Parliament, facing the consequences of taking a stand against the Corn Laws, Albert inadvertently plays into the hands of Peel's critics, and jeopardises the progress that they have fought for. Meanwhile, at the Palace, the strained relationship between Victoria, Albert and Victoria's closest confidante, Lehzen, is pushed to breaking point, as Albert grows increasingly frustrated about the control that he perceives Lehzen to have over his wife, especially when the health of their children is at stake. Faced with the prospect of having to live without their respective crutches, Victoria and Albert begin to lose sight of each other. But when tragedy strikes, they realise that sacrifices will have to be made in both their personal and political lives.
Worried of a threat against Victoria, the family moves against her better judgment to their private island. But Victoria wants to return, especially when the Charterists prove a peaceful movement. This creates a rift with her husband, Prince Albert (Tom Hughes), since it was his decision to leave London. Her sister arrives as a refugee from Germany, and uses this rift as an excuse to wheedle her way in-between them, causing Albert to doubt Victoria's sensibilities and Victoria to feel distant from her husband, while they bicker over politics, and how to raise their ever-growing brood. Meanwhile, one of her ladies-in-waiting suffers in a stifled, emotionally abusive marriage and seeks romance in the arms of the local footman. I have mixed feelings about this season. Due to filming conflicts with the cast members, most of the characters from the first two seasons are absent (Victoria's mother has disappeared, Wilhelmina is gone, and there's no sign of Ernest or Lady Harriet, so we don't know how their syphilis-ravaged relationship has turned out). It's less depressing than the second season (although one episode kills off a fan favorite) and more frustrating, since Victoria and Albert are at each other's throats for most of the season, with him being cold, judgmental, and angry about his son's learning disabilities and Victoria throwing constant, childish temper tantrums. But they do reconcile before the end of the season, and her sister is in for some much-deserved castigation. <...> - according to Charity's Place - Season 3 [Charity Bishop]
