Description

On the surface, the Victorian age is one of propriety, industry, prudishness and piety. But scratch the surface and you’ll find scandal, sadism, sex, madness, malice and murder.

Presented by Stephen Fry, this series delves deep into a period of time we think we know, to discover an altogether darker reality. The stories we’re told offer a different perspective on an era which underwent massive social change. As education, trade, technology and culture blossomed, why was there an undercurrent of the ‘forbidden’ festering beneath Victorian society?

Across 12 episodes, Stephen presents a series of true accounts of the dangerous low life and debauched high life of Victorian Britain.

Ce que les critiques en disent

Amazing

Stephen Fry could narrated someone killing me and I would still enjoy it. This was a fun and interesting look into the Victorian era and the secrets they tried to keep. I hope they make a second part.

Hilarious History

Turns out that people are people, no matter where or WHEN you are. Narrator has the right tone, sounds knowledgeable enough to be taken seriously, flippant enough so it's not TOO % seriously

music too loud

lots of interesting Victorian history. I found the music annoying. it was louder than the speaking at times which made it very difficult to understand the story. especially with the thick British accent.

Captivating, imaginative storytelling!

Highly recommend this series - the voice acting and storytelling are top notch! I've listened to it multiple times over as there is so much to learn, yet, you almost don't realize you're learning due to the fact that you're delightfully entertained from the moment you enter this world with Stephen as your guide.
