BRAND NEW TRAILERS AND PHOTOS FOR BRITISH EPIC TV SERIES 'POLDARK' WITH AIDAN TURNER AND 'VICTORIA' WITH JENNA COLEMAN, RUFUS SEWELL

'VICTORIA' EPIC SERIES
GETS A NEW ROYAL TEASER
The time when the titans will clash is nearing, people, with the beginning of September seeing ITV's epic drama VICTORIA and BBC's second season of POLDARK period set series facing of in the same primetime slot on Sunday evenings. VICTORIA will, though, air its hour and a half long opening episode on the last Sunday of August (but I hear it will clash with X FACTOR) and today we have new teasers for both new shows! As I said VICTORIA starts airing August 28th with eight episodes to be aired later in January on at PBS in USA too!

VICTORIA follows the longest ruling British monarch (Jenna Coleman) for the first three years from the time she is crowned queen in 1837 at age 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert (Tom Hughes). She comes to the throne at a time of great economic turbulence and resurgent republicanism – and died 64 years later the head of the largest empire the world had ever seen, having revitalised the throne’s public image and brutally colonised, robbed and enslaved half of the planet. The first season of VICTORIA will tell the story of the first years of the reign, beginning with the moment of the Queen's accession in 1837, following her first faltering steps from capricious, hormonal teenager with a weak grasp on her duties and responsibilities to her marriage to Albert. The show is a saga of interlocking circles – the circuits of power in Buckingham Palace and Westminster, the intermarrying royal houses of Europe and the scandals of the below-stairs palace staff. At the centre stands the new Queen – a spirited, passionate woman who must, somehow, become an enduring icon of strength and ruthless imperialism. Rufus Sewell plays Lord Melbourne, her right hand and friend.



'POLDARK' SEASON 2
 GETS A FEISTY NEW TRAILER
Meanwhile, after the short teaser a few weeks ago, British national broadcaster has released a dynamic trailer for the long awaited second season of their mega popular period set series POLDARK which starts its new run on Sunday September 4th starring famous heartthrob Aidan Turner. Eleanor Tomlinson returns as his beloved Demelza but as you can see from the trailer there will be trouble in paradise for them.


POLDARK IN TROUBLE 
Beside being arrested and fighting to save his mining business in the time of poverty, whilst also grieving the loss of his first child with his loving Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), we can expect Ross facing new battles, new family and new loves in the backdrop of the French revolution which casts a shadow over life in Cornwall. He will also go naughty again with his old love Elizabeth (Heida Reed) when ten new episodes of the late 18th century set series, based on Winston Graham's bestselling novels, hit the small screens! John Nettles has joined the cast as a wealthy landowner.

  4. Glad to see the second season of Poldark is coming out soon. We dropped HULU and picked up Amazon and I believe they are to carry it. Something to look forward to.

  5. I'm with Anne. I'll eventually catch Poldark on Amazon. Hulu never was my cuppa tea and we get free Amazon video with our Prime subscription, so Hulu just isn't worth it for us.

    2. I am not sure, but I've been out of the loop the past few weeks. It's still accessible through my Tivo, so it's still going as of right now.

  6. Hopefully when she's old, she won't be drastically fat and ugly like the actual Victoria
