Victoria season 2 episode 1 spoilers: First look at ‘A Soldier’s Daughter’

Victoria season 2 episode 1Sunday night is a big one for British TV viewers — after all, Victoria season 2 episode 1 is coming on the air! This is a great opportunity to see how the show chooses to look at the next phase of the famous Queen’s life, as played by the fantastic Jenna Coleman. This is a show that is more about the interpretation than the element of surprise, which should not surprise anyone given that we’re watching a show based on history here. There are only so many different ways in which the writers are going to be able to surprise you.

Below, what we have via the fine folks over at ITV are some of the first official details from this episode; they give you a sense as to some of the story that you will be seeing, and we like to think that they are pretty in-depth. (They’re spoilers in the sense that they are a discussion of the episode, but it’s history and there is only so much that you can spoil there in the first place.)

“Picking up a month after the birth of her first child, the new series sees Queen Victoria surprise the court when she insists on returning to her duties as soon as possible.

Having taken charge in her absence, adoring new father Albert decides not to trouble his wife with worrying news regarding the British soldiers in Afghanistan. However, as the reports worsen, Victoria grows increasingly suspicious that he and Prime Minister Robert Peel are hiding something from her.

Determined to reclaim her place with characteristic impulsiveness, Victoria brings in the formidable Duchess of Buccleuch as her new Mistress of the Robes and demands that former chef, Francatelli, return to the palace kitchens.

Meanwhile, Albert’s family descend on the palace for the Christening of baby Vicky and their dynastic plotting only intensifies Victoria’s sense of frustration. Convinced that the truth is being kept from her, Victoria seeks answers from the Duke of Wellington.”

Even though Victoria may be the sovereign, one of the things that still seems to be at the forefront of this series is getting a chance to see more of Victoria’s actual sovereignty play out. She’s trying to find ways to prove herself and better demonstrate her power and influence. She’s going to find and understand more of that by the end of the season, but there are understandably going to be some additional struggles along the way.
