There is something odd about this service.

I've checked the timetable for a weekday in September. This shows that the direct journey from Forest Hill to Victoria takes 42 minutes in some cases. However the 09:42 and 10:42 take over 50 minutes with not only the 6 minutes wait at Crystal Palace which was always part of the direct service (either to change the horses or the rail gauge?), but also a 10 minute wait at Clapham Junction. I haven't checked this through the day.

Can anyone suggest why this is?

The National Rail timetable also shows the journey via Whitechapel and District line as taking 39 minutes at any time. Other routes (Overground, Jubille to Westminster to Victoria, or London Bridge, Jubilee would actually be quicker).
