Posted Filed under

ITV has released a brief teaser for the channel’s major new drama about the early life of Queen Victoria.

From the makers of BBC One’s Poldark, the eight-part series began filming last year.

Victoria follows Queen Victoria (Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman) from her accession to the throne at the tender age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years.

The cast also includes Tom Hughes (The Game) as Prince Albert, alongside Eve Myles (Torchwood) as the Queen’s senior dresser, Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van) as Leopold I, King of Belgium, Peter Firth (Spooks) as the Duke of Cumberland, Catherine Flemming (No Place to Go) as the Duchess of Kent, Rufus Sewell (Parade’s End) as Lord Melbourne, Paul Rhys (Being Human) as Sir John Conroy, Adrian Schiller (Suffragette) as Penge, Nichola McAuliffe (Coronation Street) as the Duchess of Cumberland, Daniela Holtz (Phoenix, Der Verdacht) as Victoria’s governess and confidante Baroness Lehzen, Nell Hudson (Outlander) as Miss Skerrett and Tommy-Lawrence Knight (The Sarah Jane Adventures) as the hall boy, Brodie.


Created and written by acclaimed novelist Daisy Goodwin, Victoria is expected to air on ITV this autumn and in the US early next year.

Jenna Coleman departed Doctor Who last year after playing companion Clara for three seasons and recently posted a selfie in costume on the set of Victoria.
