Look who it is.
Jenna Coleman may no longer be the Doctor’s companion, but that doesn’t mean she’s sitting on the sidelines.
While we will miss her in Doctor Who, and she will always be an alum, she’s now taking on the role of Queen Victoria in the forthcoming eight-part series, simply called Victoria.
We saw Emily Blunt (Girl on the Train) portray the queen’s early years in The Young Victoria, opposite Rupert Friend (Homeland) in 2009. Now it’s Coleman’s turn to take on the riveting role of the young royal from when the princess takes the throne at the age of 18 through her marriage to Prince Albert (Tom Hughes).
The first look of the TV series is brief, but it’s enough to get the point across:
Coleman and Hughes will be joined by Rufus Sewell as Lord Melbourne, seen in the above clip.
The anticipated series will air on PBS in what was the Downton Abbey time slot on Sunday evenings in the U.S., debuting in 2017.
