IF you haven’t seen this lush se­ries, star­ring for­mer Doc­tor Who favourite Jenna Cole­man, the start of sea­son two here is an easy in. This episode picks up a month af­ter the birth of her first child (she had nine), with the young queen shock­ing her courtiers by in­sist­ing she re­turn to work. Mean­while, hus­band Prince Al­bert is strug­gling to find a role for him­self (sound fa­mil­iar, Prince Philip?) The story, by Daisy Good­win, re­lies heav­ily on Queen Vic­to­ria’s ex­ten­sive diaries; while the extravagant set de­sign and cos­tum­ing makes this a vis­ual feast.
