Victoria's writer Daisy Goodwin has teased that someone will die in the series finale this week
'Victoria' is set to be rocked by a shocking death this weekend.
The second series of the period drama will wrap on Sunday (15.10.17) but fans will be left gripped to the edge of their seats as there will be a surprise exit for a member of the royal household and some "bad news" for one of the characters.
Writer Daisy Goodwin said of the forthcoming series finale: "It's very dramatic, there's so much going on. There's a death and there will be tears. It's not dry history, I'm trying to make it feel as exciting as it was then."
But viewers won't have to wait too long to find out the consequences the shock departure has on the royal family as the show will return for a one-off festive special.
Speaking to the TV Times magazine, Daisy explained: "It's so exciting and I hope it'll be delight for people. Albert [played by Tom Hughes] is so crucial to the way we celebrate the festive season now. We can see him take Christmas to unimaginable heights. You'll be astonished by the royal Christmas; they really go for it.
"There's not just one tree - every member of the family has one! There's snow, ice and a dramatic rescue and even an African princess."
According to the RadioTimes.com, the special will run on Christmas Day (25.12.17) and will last for 120 minutes - including advert breaks - on ITV.
Not much else is known about the special but it's thought it will be a follow on from the second series, which hit screens in September, as Jenna Coleman reprised her role as the late Queen Victoria, while Tom returned as her handsome husband Albert.
And it seems there may be more series on the way as Daisy still has ideas up her sleeve that she'd like to put into a script over the next few years.
Jenna, 31, explained previously: "We're doing season two and then it's a question of where we go from there. There's no shortage of story. You don't want to go through it too quickly. There are nine children to have, so there is a long way to go."
