SUN­DAY

VIC­TO­RIA (ITV, 9pm)

Cynon Valley - - TOPTV -

DIANA Rigg first came to fame in 1965 as Emma Peel in The Avengers. Since then she’s played strong (and oc­ca­sion­ally un­hinged) women in many pro­duc­tions – and proved just as for­mi­da­ble in Vic­to­ria, join­ing the cast for the sec­ond se­ries as the Duchess of Buc­cleuch, the new Mis­tress of the Robes.

“I love her can­dour, the fact she is straight­for­ward,” ex­plains Rigg. “I like the fact that I don’t think she would lie – she is what you see.

“She does her own thing, un­til Vic­to­ria tries to put her in her place oc­ca­sion­ally. Al­though I think it bounces off her!”
