Currently airing Sunday on PBS at 9/8c
See the highly anticipated premiere on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 9/8c. In 1837, a diminutive, neglected teenager is crowned Queen Victoria, navigates the scandal, corruption, and political intrigues of the Court, and soon rises to become the most powerful woman in the world. Victoria stars Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) as Queen Victoria in a highly anticipated series that follows the drama of the candid, spirited monarch who was perhaps the first woman to seem to have it all.
Following Victoria from the time she becomes Queen through her passionate courtship and marriage to Prince Albert, the lavish premiere season of Victoria dramatizes the romance and reign of the girl behind the famous monarch.
In addition to Ms. Coleman, the stellar ensemble includes Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle, Zen, The Pillars of the Earth) as Lord Melbourne, her first prime minister and intimate friend and Tom Hughes (Page Eight, Dancing on the Edge) as her husband Prince Albert.
Fresh off The Crown & newly Into To Call A Midwife, it’s safe to say I’m Really Into British history right now. I am stoked about the new PBS Masterpiece series, Victoria. We already know a second season is in the works & I love that because I can get Into the story & know there’s more to come. The series is written by Daisy Goodwin, the author of the well loved novel, Victoria. The first season of Victoria focuses on the first 3 years of her reign & remember- she ruled for 63 years! I’m so excited about this series & I’ll be updating this post weekly.
