    Queen Victoria may be on the cover but Maharaja Duleep Singh is the real protagonist and Paul Bazely gives a very convincing and sympathetic performance.

    This story is a solid psychological horror story but it suffers in comparison with the recent and fascinatingly creepy Dead Man’s Switch as a horror story with a secondary Torchwood character.

    Rowena Cooper is still great as Queen Victoria but, once again, Fortitude suffers in comparison with a previous audio drama on that point. Compared to The Victorian Age, there is far less character development for Queen Victoria (or maybe I connected less this time around) and it doesn’t provide as much history of everyday Torchwood business back then.

    To sum it up, I liked this good thriller with solid performances and great sound effects but I couldn’t help thinking about similar releases that I like better.
