It’s the last episode in what’s turned out to be ITV’s biggest drama hit of the year so far, so it’s unsurprising that the channel has ordered a second series. But may I suggest when
returns, it’s without all the tepid below-stairs shenanigans? They just get in the way.
A heavily pregnant Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is bored, uncomfortable and restless, lounging around eating marrons glacés and feeling she’s under acute observation. All the chatter about what to do if she dies in childbirth isn’t exactly comforting, either.
Albert (Tom Hughes) tries to be attentive, but Victoria only ends up feeling stifled, so she takes a carriage ride in the park. But danger lurks in the crowds of “wellwishers”.
Meanwhile, Albert’s sexyboots brother Ernest (David Oakes) has returned to see his dopey duchess, the woman who wears a necklace in her hair.
The queen is heavily pregnant, but defies her mother and husband when they try to keep her confined to the palace - while the Duke of Cumberland sees political advantage to be gained should Victoria die in childbirth. During a public appearance by Victoria and Albert, a man in the crowd tries to assassinate her, setting in motion a number of conspiracy theories. Skerett receives an offer from Francatelli to join him in his new establishment. Last in the series.
