Here's my thought:
We go forward and then down the hall on the right. That is back to the plan of keep trying to go deeper into the castle. Ulthok can lead and check for traps and such.
Next Lothor to back him up followed by Cor and Rayne. We keep the Sorcerous in the middle followed by Weaver Foan and last the fighter/ mage Alyia. Alyia could cast a wall of ice down the hall behind us to block the Orcs from coming through the door and following us.
We can do a quick post setting marching order and direction, then Tann can set up the hall so we can plan the following move. There are sure to be more doors so we should be ready to either check rooms or by pass.
Should we search the nearby rooms? Being we are in the torture room, usually the dungeon is close. It's just convenient when you are carting prisoners back and forth. Although back may not be applicable in this case.
We had come in from the top (north looking at the map) and turned (west side looking at the map) to go to the room at the end of the hall. Now we are going(east) back past the first hall we came through and turning right(south) to go down the next hall.(This all assuming the top of the map is north)

If you head South down that Hallway your head straight back to the Lab as you ran NORTH from it then went West to help Roan. You guys are at the Star on the map above.
If you go North your headed back to the three rooms you first checked, Kobolds, Orcs, and Mirror. The only unchecked area's are to the West and East. Also for Aliya to cast Ice Wall to stop the pursuing orcs she has to block the Corridor you came up of course which is now the South one.
See where your arrow is pointing? That South bound hallway? You came North from that hallway up to the arrow from the lab then turned to the West to help Roan.
Ok see the yellow star? the party is standing on it rt now. See that North running hallway? You came down that hallway from the Mirror room.
You initially bypassed those three doors to the West and went East then South down that hallway where your arrow is pointing and ended up in the Lab. You have not searched those 3 rooms yet or gone east to the other two North/South hallways.
