It was exactly two months since Christmas that we were gifted a belated present in the form of the Victoria season 2 Christmas special, “Comfort & Joy”, but none of us were complaining. Except for Mr. Penge, as there were quite a few Christmas trees to decorate.
The season 2 finale was everything a Christmas special should be: the return of past, forgotten characters, storylines wrapped up with a tidy bow, historical events and facts woven through the narrative, and a cozy feeling of family. It makes us miss the Christmas episodes from Downton Abbey, but Victoria is a strong contender for our yearly dose of holiday romances, festive attire, and decorations. There’s even a servants’ ball!
