WATCH: ITV unveils first look preview for ‘Victoria’ with Jenna Coleman
First we got the first look images. Then we got the all too brief teaser trailer. Now, as the nation basks in all things Queen-related, ITV has very kindly given us a three and a half minute, ‘first look’ preview of the highly anticipated Victoria; and it looks sublime.
The 8-part drama will follow the early life of Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman) from her accession to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert (Tom Hughes).
The brand new clip shows the young Queen greeting a room full of her lords, with the assistance of her first prime minister Lord Melbourne (Rufus Sewell), before sharing a private – if very significant conversation – with him.
Simply visit www.itv.com/firstlook and enter a valid ITV area postcode to view the full clip, alongside a number of fresh ITV preview clips of such shows as Dark Angel with Joanne Froggatt, and Tutankhamun with Max Irons and Sam Neill.
Victoria will air on ITV later this year.
