The show depicts the first few years of Queen Victoria – played by Jenna Coleman – as she takes to the throne as a teenager.
The former Doctor Who actress stars opposite Tom Hughes, who portrays her husband, Prince Albert, and follows the couple while they juggle their young family with life in the public eye.
But there have been moments which left fans in uproar, with many lashing out at ‘historical inaccuracies’ on social media.
Daisy Goodwin, screenwriter behind the popular show, has hit back at claims she has ‘rewritten’ history.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online and others at the DVD launch of Victoria season 2, she explained: “We try and keep it as close… I know this history very well.
“When I change stuff, it’s because I’ve decided to do it, it’s not because I didn’t know.
“It’s because I’ve decided: ‘Well I think we can do this without completely being untrue to the period.’”
Daisy also explained what viewers could expect from the third series of the ITV drama.
When asked what she was planning for the next instalment, she joked: “I’ve not written it yet.
“I can tell you there will be drama, intrigue, babies, and there might be revolutions.
“There might be all kinds of things!”
Victoria: Season 2 is out on DVD now.
