ITV continues its stunning costume drama ‘Victoria’ starring Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes tonight with episode 6, ‘The Queens Husband’ from 9pm.
With no real role in the household, Albert (Tom Hughes) feels worthless and matters are made worse when the Duke of Sussex (David Bamber) refuses to let him take precedence at dinner. Whilst a dejected Albert hopes that an heir might garner more respect, Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is determined to outmanoeuvre Sussex and give Albert the esteem he deserves.
Below stairs, the servant’s gossip over when to expect the first Royal baby and Skerrett (Nell Hudson) faces a dilemma when the only person who can save her cousin and small child from imminent death is the person she trusts the least – Francatelli (Ferdinand Kingsley).
Albert has his own ideas about how to make himself valuable – he decides to open the anti- slavery convention and nervously prepares his speech.
Tonight’s episode has a cameo from the show’s writer and creator Daisy Goodwin, as the “Duchess of Inverness”.
