About This Audio Show

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.

A Charming Series on Victorian History

As usual Stephen Fry brings his unique charm and storytelling skills to this series. I have a great love for Victorian history and this was fun, informative and educational. I have recommended this too so many people.

He has a lot of talent

There is a point when one cannot but feel troubled by certain scenes. Fairly good narrative though.

Stephen Fry is a master storyteller...

What a special treat to find out this was free on Audible! Noone tells a tale as well Stephen Fry, and he certainly delivers, yet again, with these illuminating, educational, and totally juicy accounts of the Victorian era! Stephen Fry, you're a gift to the world!
