About the show

Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) returns for a new season as the young queen who wants it all — romance, power, an heir, and personal freedom. Joining the cast in the new season is legendary actress Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), who plays the Duchess of Buccleuch, the court’s new Mistress of the Robes. Tom Hughes reprises his role as the queen’s dashing consort, Prince Albert, and Rufus Sewell returns as the smoldering Lord Melbourne. Victoria, Season 2, airs in seven episodes created and scripted by bestselling novelist Daisy Goodwin and premieres Jan. 14, 2018, on MASTERPIECE on WIPB.

PENDLETON – The WIPB-TV truck rolled into Pendleton on Sept. 17 to record stories with 20 of its residents for WIPB’s second “Now Entering.”

The backdrop for the interviews was the beautiful Pendleton Historical Museum, located next to the the Falls.

One by one, residents entered the building to share their stories about homesteads, high schools, famous residents, quilts, volunteerism and much more.

Nameless Catering, a Pendleton business, provided our lunch. Delicious.

So many great stories were shared. We cannot wait to share them with viewers!
