THE TIMES – Jenna Coleman, who is about to resume playing our second-longest reigning monarch in a Christmas special of Victoria, once met our longest-reigning monarch — in front of the Tardis. It was during Coleman’s previous job, playing the Doctor’s sparky companion Clara Oswald in Doctor Who. The Queen was attending an event at the BBC and the Blackpool-born actress was in line to shake hands.

“She said, ‘What do you do?’ ” Coleman recalls with a grin. “I said, ‘I travel through time and space.’ And she said, ‘That sounds like fun.’ ”

Coleman, 31 in Earth years, is still travelling through time and space in Victoria — just a rather more narrow portion of it. There are clear parallels between the queen she has met and the one she has played since 2015 in the ITV series, she says. “Growing up on the job, being a symbol of endurance.” Like Elizabeth, Victoria knew what it was like to be “in and out of favour — you kind of take it for granted that it was a stable time, but it really wasn’t.”

Sipping herbal tea in the restaurant of a hotel in Kensington, central London, Coleman is tiny, pretty and porcelain-skinned in grey sweater and chic black dungarees. Combine her luminosity with a wit and earthy zest that she honed in soap operas and you have a very different kind of Victoria from the dumpy matriarch of popular perception.

“People just don’t know the younger person at all,” she says in a voice that still has its Lancastrian twinkle. “The only photographic images we have of her are when she’s older. It’s hard to connect those with her younger self, full of life and romantic.” There’s also much Saxe-Coburg sexiness in this Victoria’s relationship with Albert (Tom Hughes). Like The Crown — the more highbrow Netflix series about Elizabeth II, which Coleman “inhaled in a weekend” — this show has given us a hot young royal couple who shag each other. The difference is that Coleman is also with the dashing Hughes in real life.

DEADLINE – Jenna Coleman’s Victoria may have already ascended to the throne and married Prince Albert but ITV’s royal drama shows no sign of slowing after the UK broadcaster ordered a third season of the big-budget series.

The new season will follow the next chapter in the monarch’s eventful life and will see Coleman and Tom Hughes, who plays Albert, both return. ITV-owned Mammoth Screen will produce the series for ITV and PBS’ Masterpiece. It will follow a feature-length episode, which will air on Christmas Day.

The second season averaged over 4M viewers for ITV, down slightly on the first season, but is still one of the commercial broadcaster’s most consistent, and most discussed, dramas. Creator Daisy Goodwin, who previously ran Sony-owned production company Silver River before she created the royal thriller, said that season three will begin in 1848, a “hugely dramatic and eventful” time for the royals as revolutions across Europe created uncertainty around the monarchy. “Viewers can expect more drama than ever before in the third series,” she added.

Victoria was recommissioned by ITV’s Head of Drama and is exec produced by Mammoth Screen boss Damien Timmer and Masterpiece’s Rebecca Eaton. ITV Studios Global Entertainment, which has sold the series to over 150 countries around the world, will continue to distribute globally.

Hill said: “We’re delighted that the nation has taken Victoria to its hearts. Filled with romance, political crises and family drama, Daisy Goodwin’s scripts bring this fascinating part of history to life so vividly and we look forward to regaling audiences with the next part of the illustrious Queen’s reign.”

Timmer added: “Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes shine as Victoria and Albert and it’s an honour to have them back for a third series, which covers a tumultuous period in our country’s history, filled to the brim with royal scandals, political skirmishes and constitutional crises, as new historical figures enter the saga to challenge Victoria and Albert as never before.” (source)
