The third season of Victoria continued on ITV in the UK tonight.

Here’s a plot recap for ‘Foreign Bodies’, which first aired at 9pm on Sunday 14th April 2019:

Victoria and Albert are still at loggerheads after their return from Osborne and Victoria ignores a letter from Skerrett, who has now left her service.

Albert intends to depart for Cambridge, having been invited to be Chancellor of the University.

Across London, a reception for foreign diplomats is interrupted by the news of a cholera outbreak in Soho and the eccentric Dr. Snow visits those suffering and becomes determined to find the cause of the disease.

With the illness spiralling out of control, Victoria visits a hospital with Palmerston and meets a young nurse called Florence Nightingale who ells her that the disease cannot be airborne.

As a result, Victoria summons Snow to the Palace just as he he makes a breakthrough.

Meanwhile, the Francatellis host an opening dinner for their new hotel and Penge has noticed the growing attraction between Sophie and Joseph.
