Episode 2 – London Bridge Is Falling Down


After the birth of Princess Louise, Victoria is too weak to travel to Osborne House, so much to Albert's reluctance, the family stay in London. However, when it appears that the Chartists have become a violent movement, Victoria must order troops to protect herself.


Meanwhile, Skerrett is torn between her old life and new when Francatelli buys a hotel and organises a special marriage license, and Sophie has a frisson with Lord Palmerston when her carriage is overturned and the MP comes to her rescue. 


Louis Phillippe is also outstaying his welcome, upsetting both Albert and the children and the Prince is faced with no choice but to ask him to leave.


Series overview


Critically-acclaimed historical drama, Victoria, returns for a third series on ITV with Jenna Coleman reprising her role as the young Queen, alongside Tom Hughes as Prince Albert.


Starting in 1848, the third instalment of the lavish drama depicts a turbulent and uncertain time for both Europe and the monarchy. With revolutions on the continent and the Chartist movement reaching its peak in London, Victoria is under pressure from the government to leave London for her own safety.


Joining the leads, Laurence Fox (Lewis) plays charismatic and wayward Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston, whilst Tony and Olivier Award nominee Kate Fleetwood (Harlots) takes the role of Victoria’s mysterious sister Feodora, who makes an unexpected return into the Queen’s life.


In addition, actor and comedian John Sessions (The Loch) stars as Prime Minister John Russell, whilst Lily Travers (Kingsman) plays the Duchess of Monmouth. Nicholas Audsley (The White Princess), David Burnett (The Mummy) and Sabrina Bartlett (Versailles) also join the cast as new characters.


Produced by leading drama indie Mammoth Screen as a co-production with MASTERPIECE, and created by writer and producer Daisy Goodwin.
