For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Gather round for a ghostly Victorian full-cast audio adventure in the Torchwood Monthly Range, due for release in December 2022 from Big Finish Productions.
Forget Elf on the Shelf, advent calendars, and ugly Christmas jumpers! This year, explore the historical tradition of spooky seasonal stories with Queen Victoria (Rowena Cooper).
Christmas Eve, and in a secret library underneath Buckingham Palace, Queen Victoria has invited her new prime minister to a very private tradition.
At one hour to midnight, the monarch insists on the telling of ghost stories. Stories of the supernatural, the alien, and the unsettling. Only this year, something else has got in.
We are not alone.
Writer Jonathan Barnes said: “It's a Torchwood ghost story for Christmas! The Empire Man contains three linked ghost stories which have an unexpected conclusion, with Queen Victoria as the master of ceremonies.”
Poirot’s Hugh Fraser joins the haunting tale as devoted palace footman, Castringham. Richard David-Caine (Horrible Histories) also appears as a Prime Minister with a secret, alongside West End star Patience Tomlinson as Queen Victoria’s former nanny, Mrs Wickmere!
Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
Big Finish listeners can save money by pre-ordering Torchwood Monthly Adventures in a six-release bundle for just £60 (collector’s edition CD + download) or £50 (download only). A bundle of 12 adventures is also available to pre-order from just £96.
