To celebrate Victoria Day, the anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birthday, ITV has released a clip and image for the second series of Victoria.
The clip, which stars Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) and Tom Hughes (The Game) as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, shows the Christening of the couple’s first-born child, Victoria.
Picking up six weeks after the first series ended, the new series will establish Victoria as a “working mother, learning to balance her responsibilities as both parent and Queen”, while . Albert struggles to find a role for himself alongside his powerful wife.
Dame Diana Rigg is set to join the cast along with Line Of Duty star Martin Compston who will be making a guest appearance as social activist Dr. Robert Traill. The pair joins returning cast members including Nigel Lindsay (Unforgotten), David Oakes (The White Queen), Daniela Holtz (Circle Of Life), Catherine Flemming (Tatort) and Nell Hudson (Outlander) for the eight-part run.
Here’s that trailer, then…
And here’s a nice big picture of the ‘new’ family.
