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.


Episode 7 - A Public Inconvenience


Victoria and Albert have never been further apart as Albert unveils plans for an international exhibition on a scale the world has never seen before. Working alongside Henry Cole, he faces the dilemma of where they will house to exhibition and how it will be funded.


On the political front, Lord Palmerston causes uproar when he sends the navy in to blockade Greece after Don Pacifico, a British subject, is attacked.


Meanwhile, Monmouth engages Penge to provide confirmation of Sophie and Joseph’s affair and asks him to spy on them. Penge agrees to follow the pair, witnessing Sophie becoming disheartened when she learns some revealing information about Joseph’s time at Chatsworth.
