Ever wonder what teenage Queen Victoria must've gone through when she was crowned in 1837? Starting Jan. 15, you can began to watch the young queen's trials and tribulations on the new PBS Masterpiece series, Victoria, which started airing on Britain's ITV in August 2016. 

For double Anglophile fun, the show not only centers on a British monarch but stars Jenna Coleman of Doctor Who fame, too. Of course, if you're a hardcore Doctor Who fan, you may not be pleased to know that she quit the show to play Queen Victoria, but you might just change your mind after watching the premiere. 

Other standout actors who appear in the series include Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle, Zen, The Pillars of the Earth) and Tom Hughes (Page Eight, Dancing on the Edge). They play Lord Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first prime minister, and Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, respectively.
