Killing Victoria

BBC Sounds

During the 63-year-long reign of Queen Victoria, seven men took the fateful decision to try to kill her. The seven men were within seconds of changing history - each could have brought the Victorian era to a premature end, yet each has been forgotten to history. This new podcast series narrated by Dr Bob Nicholson will look to answer the question of what led these men to try to kill the most famous and influential woman on the planet.

  • A fascinating podcast

    I don’t know much about the reign of Queen Victoria, let alone detailed descriptions of the lives of the men who tried to assassinate the Queen. The narrator shared their stories and their motivations, provides important context for what was happening in the UK at the time, and describes the Queen’s reactions to these attempts on her life and the fate of her would-be assassins in a captivating and informative way. I would highly recommend!
