It's not what I typically associate with Victorian English. Then again, most of the Victorian English I'm familiar with is the printed word, and "fuck" has long been considered "unprintable". Given that much of Carnival Row concerns criminals, war, and slums it's probably not that out of place, I'm just not used to it in that context.

That, and I can't stop associating the Haruspex with the Borg Queen. The actress has a very distinctive voice to me.
