Having consistently beaten 'Poldark' in the ratings, ITV has commissioned a second series of 'Victoria'.
Following a strong display in the Sunday evening ratings, ITV’s historical drama ‘Victoria’, which stars Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria, has been given the green light for a second series next year.
30 year old Coleman, who plays the young monarch, and co-star Tom Hughes, who portrays her husband Prince Albert, will both return to their roles, with writer and executive producer Daisy Goodwin also retaining her position.

Jenna has previously dated actor Richard Madden and been linked to Prince Harry.
Their on screen chemistry is helping make ITV’s ‘Victoria’ unmissable TV every Sunday night, but it appears Jenna Coleman and her co-star Tom Hughes are having a romance off screen as well. The two actors have reportedly been dating since last summer, before they even started filming the period drama.
Is Jenna Coleman secretly dating Tom Hughes?
The Mail on Sunday reports that the two became an item after Coleman was linked to Price Harry. Hughes was said to be jealous that the royal was moving in on the actress and decided to pursue her himself.

Both shows attracted over 5 million viewers, but Jenna Coleman’s ‘Victoria’ claimed victory.
TV viewers had a difficult choice to make on Sunday evening as ITV’s ‘Victoria’ went head-to-head with the return of the BBC’s ‘Poldark’ in the 9pm slot. Both period dramas were a big hit with viewers, but somewhat surprisingly ‘Victoria’ managed to win the ratings war, narrowly beating Aidan Turner’s return.

According to early viewing figures from Overnight TV, 'Poldark' scored 5.1 million viewers on the BBC, taking 22.7% of the audience share. But ‘Victoria’ managed slightly better on ITV, with 5.3 million viewers and a 23.5% audience share.
Clara was last seen leaving in a stolen TARDIS with Ashildr, after wiping The Doctor’s memories.
‘Doctor Who’ fans might not have seen the last of Jenna Coleman’s Clara Oswald, according The Doctor himself Peter Capaldi. Speaking at Awesome Con in Washington on Monday (June 7) the actor might have let slip a little too much when it comes to Clara’s future on the show.
Could Jenna Coleman be returning to ‘Doctor Who’?
“I’m not sure how successfully Clara was able to wipe his mind,” Capaldi told the crowd while sitting with Coleman, according to the Radio Times. “I just… I was about to tell you something I can’t tell you.” But that wasn’t all Capaldi had to say.

With a story that links together every cliche from the weepy chick-flick library, this movie uses its doomed romance premise to reduce every woman in the audience into floods of tears. Adapted by author Jojo Moyes from her bestselling novel, the movie will work its trickery on its target audience, and it will just about keep others interested, thanks to engaging central performances by Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin.
It's set in a picture-perfect British village located next to the ruins of a picturesque castle, where the quirky Louisa (Clarke) has just lost her job as a waitress in a tearoom. But her parents (Brendan Coyle and Samantha Spiro) need her income to make ends meet, so she takes a job with the village's most prominent couple (Janet McTeer and Charles Dance), caring for their son Will (Claflin), who was a high-flying banker until he was hit by a motorbike and paralysed. Working alongside Will's nurse Nathan (Stephen Peacocke), Louisa struggles to connect with the relentlessly surly Will, who believes that there's no point with going on with his life. But Louisa is determined to help him find some hope.
Everything that happens on the way to the unnerving conclusion is deeply predictable, because we've seen it all in movies from Bridget Jones to The Fault in Our Stars. Even the gently wacky romance feels oddly by-the-book, shifting from interested sideways glances to another smiley montage sequence to contrived comedy and gloomy drama. Thankfully, Clarke and Claflin breathe life into these characters, adding personality details and a spark of chemistry that helps the audience feel the connection developing between Louisa and Will. Of the supporting cast, only Peacocke manages to give his character a sense that he has a life off the screen. And it's nice to see Downton Abbey's Coyle against type.

Up until his recent accident that left him almost entirely paralysed, William Traynor has had a perfect life. He's rich, intelligent and always seeking a new adventure, though now he feels like his life has come to an end. He finds himself in the family house being nannied by his mother and staff. To put an end to his current state, Will decides that he wants to end his life in a clinic. With his mother understandably distraught over his choice, Will agrees to wait six months before committing to his decision.
Louisa Clark is a young local woman who lives a life completely different to Will. Though she doesn't have much self-belief, she's incredibly upbeat, likes her small town ways and has never felt the need to go out and discover the world. When Louisa is left jobless, she pays a visit to the job centre (a place that she's a little too accustom to) and her advisor finds a new listing (for a care giver) that might just be a perfect job for Louisa. Louisa visits the Traynor family estate and Will's mum decides that Louisa and her positivity might just be the ray of sunshine that he needs.
Whilst Will is initially reluctant to allow Louisa into his life, over the course of the following weeks, he can't help but be enamoured by her charm. Their relationship grows and grows but when Lousia finds out about Will's choices for the future, will she be able to convince Will that there is something to live for?

Who will replace Clara Oswald?
‘Doctor Who’s’ Peter Capaldi has revealed the show is looking for someone ‘different’ to take over from Jenna Coleman as the Timelord’s companion. Coleman, who played Clara Oswald in the BBC series, departed in December and her replacement has still not been found.
‘Doctor Who’ are looking for someone 'different' to be the Timelord’s new assistant.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Capaldi said: "We’ve just had some brief talks about it, we haven’t actually chosen someone yet — that I know of. Perhaps someone has been chosen but I would expect that I would meet them before we finalised all that."
The long-serving showrunner has stepped down and will be replaced by ‘Broadchurch’s’ Chris Chibnall.
‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat has stepped down as the show’s lead writer and executive producer after six series in charge. According to the Radio Times, Moffat will hand over to ‘Broadchurch’s’ Chris Chibnall at the end of the next series, scheduled to be in 2017.
Steven Moffat is to step down as ‘Doctor Who’s’ showrunner.
The BBC will air Moffat’s final 12 part series in spring 2017, but he will also helm a Christmas special later this year. Chibnall’s debut series will then launch in 2018. It’s unclear wether Moffat’s Christmas special will feature the Doctor’s new companion, but sources say Jenna Coleman’s replacement will definitely appear in the spring 2017 series.

The writer has been accused of making the show more ‘misogynist’ since he took over from Russell T. Davies in 2010.
‘Doctor Who’ showrunner Steven Moffat has spoken out over claims that the show has become ‘misogynist’ since he took over as lead writer. In a survey carried out last year by group of US university students, it was found that women on the show had less speaking time and fewer speaking roles under Moffatt.
Peter Capaldi in 'Doctor Who'.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Moffatt said it was a “complicated issue”, adding: “The general point being made by these people is correct. We need better female role models on screen.” However the writer said he doesn't understand why his show is the one being single out as ‘misogynist’.
