Big Finish Releases A ‘Torchwood’ Victorian Ghost Story


Big Finish is giving us a Victorian Christmas ghost story this December with a new Torchwood story starring Queen Victoria herself. Torchwood: The Empire Man is out now and features Queen Victoria inviting her prime minister to a Christmas private tradition:

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.

Rowena Cooper is back playing Queen Victoria. She previously played the role in several Big Finish stories. Cooper is joined by Richard David-Caine (The Prime Minister), Hugh Fraser (Castringham), and Patience Tomlinson (Mrs. Wickmere).

Empire Man is directed by Lisa Bowerman and produced by James Goss.

The release was shared on Twitter:

Torchwood: The Empire Man is available to purchase on Big Finish website as a CD and a download.
