Rachael New Talks to Salon about Miss Scarlet & The Duke

Kate Phillips & Stuart Martin as Eliza Scarlet & William Wellington

Miss Scarlet & The Duke creator Rachael New spoke to Salon about Victorian death photography, tabloids and what she would like to see in a second season.

She also mentioned what might be in store for Rupert, the character played by Andrew Gower:

I would have lots of things in store for Rupert and how he’d navigate his domineering mother, and try and have some semblance of a happy life. It would be really difficult for him because she’s a very difficult woman. I love Mrs. Parker. We would have more of her in Season 2 as well.

We’re looking forward to seeing more of Rupert Parker and his mother (played by Helen Norton) and fully support the petition for season 2 of Miss Scarlet & The Duke.
