Stephen Fry's Victorian Secrets
- Written by: Stephen Fry, John Woolf, Nick Baker
- Length: 7 hrs and 40 mins
- Original Recording
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?

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.
