2.1. The Victorian Age
'One of the best character pieces that Big Finish has ever produced... AK Benedict has the potential to be one of the most talented and well renowned writers in Big Finish’s arsenal.' Gallifrey Archive
'AK Benedict’s script is an absolute belter and the chemistry between Captain Jack and Queen Victoria is brilliant – full of spark and sass!' Blogtor Who
'It is very different from both expectations and others in the series so far. That’s a good thing and producer James Goss is to be praised for the breadth this series has encompassed so far, and Scott Handcock admired for his direction. There’s even a wonderful new mix theme tune by Blair Mowat.' Red Rocket Rising
'Rowena Cooper makes the Queen testy, feisty, regal and with a heart as big as London – but a Queen you would never dare cross (and without a doubt NOT amused)' Planet Mondas
London, England, the 1890s. Queen Victoria, ruler of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India, has arrived for her annual inspection of the Torchwood Institute. This year, everyone is quite determined, nothing will go wrong.
Several minutes later a terrible creature is unleashed on the streets of London. No one knows where it comes from, what it is, or even why it's on Earth. It's ruthless, has no morals, and is quite unstoppable. Captain Jack Harkness is on the loose, and Queen Victoria is along for the ride of her life.
