The legacy of Luther Arkwright haunts his daughter Victoria, as she embarks on a mission to uncover her family's hidden secrets...

Part 1 Daughter of Albion
Princess Victoria Arkwright never knew her father, a man whose shadow she has lived under since he saved the multiverse from the cataclysmic forces of the Disruptors. 23 years after she and her brother Henry were born in the flames of war, Victoria seeks answers, but the truth lies deep in shadow. As rebellion gains momentum against Queen Anne’s totalitarian rule, dark forces grow at the heart of the British Empire, forces that threaten all realities. The multiverse needs Luther Arkwright to save it once more, but Luther Arkwright is dead...

Part 2 Cataclysm
Victoria Arkwright is drawn towards destiny as she unravels the dangerous secrets that have remained hidden since her brother’s brutal murder. Prophecy says that reality will cease on her 23rd birthday - Victory Day - but with the help of Harry Fairfax and Rose Wylde, Victoria is determined to prevent the new apocalypse. To unlock her true self, Victoria must embrace painful realities and the enormity of the multiverse; only then will she discover the legacy of Luther Arkwright.

Recorded on: 6-7 June and 25-26 August 2022

David Tennant said: “There was always a vague ambition to perhaps return to this character. It takes a bit of bending of the brain to fully appreciate the worlds of Luther Arkwright but it's definitely worth the effort.

We've almost waited long enough for the sequel to be in real time. Eighteen years is quite a long time ago. A lot's happened in between. Another life.”

Mark Wright said: “It feels like a little bit of unfinished business has been put to rest. The chance to work once again in the breathtaking, mind-bending, exciting universe that Brian created is one of those ‘pinch-me' moments. I got to do it in 2005, and to get to do it again years later is just lucky! 

And to hear the original members of the cast - David, India, Jeremy, Siri, Robert - return along with our amazing new lead Georgina, it doesn't get much better really.”


This is an absolute gem. Jason [Haigh-Ellery] should do more directing! This is an example of something that is just beautiful.
