Amidst this Doctor Who gap year comes a shard of light as Jenna Coleman returns to our screens in ITV’s brand new drama, Victoria, tonight (Sunday).

In her first post-Doctor Who role, the Clara Oswald actress – who bowed out of the TARDIS last year – takes on the guise of Queen Victoria as the 8-part series depicts the story of Her Majesty’s fascinating early years, taking us from her ascension to the throne aged just 18 through to her marriage to Prince Albert, played by Tom Hughes. It also stars familiar faces including Eve Myles and Tommy Knight.

Victoria starts tonight at 9pm on ITV and you can check out the trailer in the player below. Are you excited to see Jenna finally back on our screens? Let us know if you’ll be tuning in!

Rumours are abound this week that Series 10 will be filming in Vancouver later this year.

The reports were sparked by a recent comment from Peter Capaldi and the news has since been picked up by CBS who have highlighted the show’s previous connections with the city, including the 1996 TV Movie which was shot on location there.

Production on the next series has already taken place abroad. Last month scenes for Episode 2 were filmed in Valencia.

So, would you like to see filming in Vancouver? Where else would be your dream location?

Jenna Coleman has dismissed ongoing rumours that she’ll be returning to Doctor Who as Clara Oswald in Series 10.

The actress, who bowed out as the impossible girl at the end of the last series, told Collider that no comeback is planned – “at least for a good while” – and affirmed that she “couldn’t have asked” for a better exit storyline. “Steve planned it for so long, and I think he did a great job,” she said. “It had been been in the works for a while, from Face the Raven to the epic finale of twists and turns, so you don’t want to unpick that it any way, really.”

She continued: “So for the foreseeable, I think Clara will remain broken down somewhere in time and space, trying to understand how to work the TARDIS with Ashildr! It’s been an incredible three series. It was such a unique time in my life and it has been truly amazing.”

Jenna will be back on our screens this autumn as Victoria in ITV’s ambitious 8-part drama.
