Sneak peek at Victoria - The King Over The Water which airs October 8
Episode 7 - The King Over The Water
Feeling suffocated after a repeated assassination attempt leads to increased security at the Palace, Victoria seeks escape to the land she fantasised about as a child: the Scottish Highlands. However, it isn’t the romantic retreat she has read about in her Walter Scott novels, and she begins to realise that, wherever she is in the world, she can’t escape the fact that she is Queen.
When a day out takes an unexpected turn, Victoria finally gets the anonymity she wished for, while Albert enjoys being able to play the role of a traditional husband for the first time. Hidden away from normal Palace life, the entire court – servants and royals alike – find secrets and romance bubbling up to the surface on a liberating midsummer’s night.
Following critical acclaim and record ratings in both the UK and America, this summer sees the return of ITV’s hugely popular drama, Victoria, produced by Mammoth Screen.
Once again written by creator and executive producer, Daisy Goodwin, the brand new eight-part season will see Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who, Me Before You) and Tom Hughes (Paula, The Game) reprise their roles as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, as they face new challenges both at home and abroad.
Resuming one month after the first series ended, the new season establishes Victoria as a working mother, learning to balance her responsibilities as both parent and Queen. However, Prince Albert is still struggling to find a role for himself alongside his powerful wife as she returns to her duties, intent on proving that she can be both a mother and dedicated Queen.
