Victoriocity: A neo-Victorian detective comedy podcast available for download

Even Greater London, 1887

In this vast metropolis, Inspector Archibald Fleet and journalist Clara Entwhistle investigate a murder, only to find themselves at the centre of a conspiracy of impossible proportions.

Inspired by the nineteenth-century sensation novels of Wilkie Collins and Mary Elizabeth Braddon, and classic audio comedy dramas such as Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Victoriocity is a detective story set in a reimagined Victorian past that offers comedy and suspense in equal measure.

Following in the footsteps of critically acclaimed podcast Wooden Overcoats, Victoriocity has been created, developed, and produced by a dedicated team of creative newcomers, without the backing of an established production company. Nevertheless, the team has succeeded in creating a high quality comedy drama series in six parts. None of this would have been possible without the commitment of over thirty actors, artists, composers, musicians and technicians who volunteered their time, energy and talent to make the project happen. Such dedication is a testament to their belief in the quality of the script and to the passion and drive of the production team as a whole.

Victoriocity is a brand new detective comedy podcast. This full-studio audio drama was written by Chris and Jen Sugden, with original music by Jon Ouin (Stornoway), and features some rapidly rising stars in British comedy.
