ITV have released a full-length trailer for the upcoming Victoria. Jenna Coleman will play the lead in the eight part series, which will follow the early life of Queen Victoria, from her accession to the throne at 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Screenwriter Daisy Goodwin, author of The Fortune Hunter and My Last Duchess, says the series “will explore what it was like for an emotionally deprived teenager of diminutive stature to wake up one morning and find that she is the most powerful woman in the world.”
