Former #DoctorWho Companion Plays Queen #Victoria

Jenna Coleman returns in a new role as Queen Victoria.

The former Doctor Who actress is in this eight part mini series, "Victoria," that will debut on PBS in 2017 on Sunday, the same time slot that Downton Abby occupied for the last six years.

This mini-series follows the early life of Queen Victoria, from her accession to the throne at the age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. It stars Coleman, Tom Hughes, Eve Myles, Tommy Knight and Rufus Sewell. The series was created by Daisy Goodwin.

Here's a first look teaser from ITV.
