Victoria is without a doubt one of the most compelling period dramas of our time, following the journey of the young monarch – played by Jenna Coleman – and delving deeply into a rich history not many people knew too much about.

This week, ITV have revealed two first-look pictures of the series’ latest cast addition, Martin Compston, who will be playing Dr. Robert Traill. As a key campaigner in the petition to gain support and raise awareness surrounding the potato famine in Ireland in the 1840s, he’s fighting a cause for thousands and will play a huge part in the storylines to come.
