VICTORIA ON MASTERPIECE SEASON 2

 

Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) returns for a new season as the young queen who wants it all – romance, power, an heir and personal freedom. The seven-part drama series is created and written by Daisy Goodwin.

 

Season 2 finds Queen Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, a daughter – to the disappointment of many. Meanwhile, the Industrial Revolution takes hold in England, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing.

 

 

More than 16.2 million viewers tuned in for Victoria’s premiere season last year, making it the highest-rated drama on PBS in 20 years – second only to Downton Abbey.

 

Joining the cast in the new season is actress Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court’s new Mistress of the Robes. Tom Hughes reprises his role as the queen’s consort, Prince Albert, and Rufus Sewell returns as Lord Melbourne.
