Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) stars as the young Queen Victoria at the outset of her epic reign, which set the stage for an entire era that would be named in her honor. Scripted by bestselling novelist Daisy Goodwin (The Fortune Hunter), this series follows Victoria from her accession to the throne at age 18, through her education in politics, courtship and marriage. Victoria features Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle) as Lord Melbourne; Tom Hughes (Dancing on the Edge) as the handsome Prince Albert; Alex Jennings (Churchill’s Secret) as Leopold I, King of Belgium; Paul Rhys (Borgia) plays Sir John Conroy, the rumored lover of Victoria’s mother the Duchess of Kent, a German princess played by German actress Catherine H. Flemming. 

In Victoria, writer Daisy Goodwin imaginatively depicts what it was like for an ill-educated, emotionally deprived teenager to wake up one morning and nd that she is the most powerful woman in the world. Victoria will air in seven parts, on MASTERPIECE, beginning January 15, 2017 on PBS.

Speakers for PBS

Area

PBS stations across the country are looking for speakers as they hold December events to promote the third season of Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE.
Downton Abbey won last year’s Primetime Emmy® award for “Outstanding Miniseries” and just received another 16 Emmy nominations for its second season. New episodes begin January 6, 2013 and, as this third season opens, the characters are in 1920 and the context has moved from the Edwardian Era to the Interwar years.
Are you able to speak to this time in British history? Would you be interested in educating an audience about the lifestyles and social changes occurring in the worlds of both the British aristocracy as well as the mainstream population?
If so, please contact gay_mohrbacher@wgbh.org who is coordinating a centralized speakers bureau for PBS stations across the country to access. You may also reach Gay at #617/300-5308.  Please send along your CV and a photo of yourself and indicate topics(s) you would enjoy sharing. Please know there is no guarantee that individual PBS stations can do more than provide an honorarium.
