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.

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.

Capaldi described an early photoshoot that he and 'Doctor Who' co-star Jenna Coleman had to do.
‘Doctor Who’ star Peter Capaldi has spoken in harsh terms about the state of gender equality in the entertainment industry, describing the relative depiction of male and female characters as “ridiculous”.
Capaldi, 57, recently won praise from female fans of the BBC sci-fi series when he insisted that it would be “creepy” if any sexual element were to be added to the on-screen relationship between the Doctor and his current, much younger assistant, Clara, played by Jenna Coleman.

Capaldi took over the role of The Doctor from Matt Smith in 2013.
Peter Capaldi will reportedly be staying with ‘Doctor Who’ for at least one more series. There had been fears that the actor would not renew his contract and BBC bosses were even said to have drawn up a shortlist possible replacements, but according to The Mirror that won’t be necessary anymore.
Peter Capaldi has reportedly signed on for one more year of 'Doctor Who'.
A BBC source told the newspaper, “Peter has made it clear he is happy playing the Doctor for as long as the BBC – and viewers – want him. We are very happy with him and viewers are also warming to him.”
With Jenna Coleman about to leave the BBC series the question is, who will be the next Doctor’s assistant?
‘Doctor Who’ writer Mark Gatiss has revealed he’s open to the idea of the next Doctor being female with a male assistant. Currently Jenna Coleman stars as the Doctor’s assistant Clara Oswald, but the actress will be leaving the show before the end of this series, making room for the Timelord’s new companion.
Jenna Coleman plays the Doctor’s current assistant Clara Oswald.
Speaking after the Attitude Awards in London, Gatiss said, "It would be very interesting if the Doctor had a male companion... but then it would be a very male show.” The writer then went on to say that he would be "delighted" if in the future the Doctor is played by a woman.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ star will play a Viking named Ashildr on the sci-fi series.
‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams has spoken about her latest role, as a young Viking named Ashildr on ‘Doctor Who’. Williams stars in this Saturday’s episode of the sci-fi series titled ‘The Girl Who Died’, as the Doctor find himself in a Viking village where all the warriors have just been slaughtered.
Maisie Williams is guest starring in ‘Doctor Who’ as a young Viking.
Speaking about joining the ‘Doctor Who’ cast Williams said, “I was approached for the role, I didn’t know much about it but knew they were introducing a new character to work closely with the Doctor.”

A drop in ratings means the BBC could decide to move ‘Doctor Who’ to ‘Sherlock’ style special episodes.
We may be only three episodes into the new series of ‘Doctor Who’, but BBC bosses are reportedly already panicking over the drop in viewing figures. According to The Mirror, the dip in viewer numbers is causing the Beeb to consider scrapping next year’s series of ‘Doctor Who’ in favour of airing 'Sherlock' style feature-length special episodes.
‘Doctor Who’ could soon get the ‘Sherlock’ treatment, with feature-leith style special episodes.
A BBC source admitted to the newspaper, “'Doctor Who’s' decline is very worrying and needs to be addressed. At this stage all options are being considered. Everyone accepts that drastic action may be needed.”
The metal singer will be lending his scream to the Time Lord’s latest foe.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor will be giving ‘Doctor Who’ viewers a fright soon, as he provides the scream for villain, the Fisher King. The metal singer is said to be a huge fan of the BBC show and was contacted by producers to lend his unique howl to the alien warlord.
Corey Taylor will provide the scream for The Fisher King.
A source told The Mirror, “Production got in touch with Slipknot because they heard Corey and the band love the show. They gave them a VIP tour and asked if Corey wanted to record his famous scream.”
