It’s back to the glory days of Torchwood London, led by Yvonne Hartman (Tracy-Ann Oberman) with the invaluable aid of her personal assistant, Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd). Joining the cast are the likes of Adjoa Andoh (best known as Martha Jones’ mum, Francine), Daniel Anthony (best known as Clyde Langer from The Sarah Jane Adventures) and WOTAN.
Three new adventures set before the Battle of Canary Wharf, united by the theme of machine technology. The Mayor of London has a new law enforcement initiative, a regular London office is about to experience a Torchwood-sized disruption and there’s a new boy in town by the name of Ianto Jones… This 3CD set takes ‘office life with aliens’ as its premise, serving up an updated WOTAN for the age of pervasive surveillance – the War Machines are now Law Machines – as well as Ianto’s first encounter with Torchwood, written by Gareth David-Lloyd himself!
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Murray Melvin as Bilis Manger – the time travelling villain who originally appeared at the climax of the first series of Torchwood.
Bilis Manger, former caretaker and antiques dealer, is now the manager of the Traveller’s Hault hotel. But what has brought him to the hotel? And what horrors await the establishment’s unfortunate guests…? This dark, eerie and claustrophobic piece is a chance to peel back some of the layers of Torchwood’s most enigmatic villain and see what makes him tick. It’s also a chance to see what he is capable of when Torchwood aren’t around to stop him!
Torchwood has been reborn. Its members are Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), Mr Colchester (Paul Clayton), Ng (Alexandria Riley), Orr (Samantha Beart) and Tyler Steele (Jonny Green), all under the command of Yvonne Hartman (Tracy-Ann Oberman).
Present-day Cardiff is a city infiltrated by aliens. They have come to escape the wrath of their god, only now it seems that God is catching up with them. Darkness descends upon Cardiff. The entire city falls asleep. Torchwood faces one of its toughest days. One man could destroy them all. Torchwood Series 6 begins here… Hot on the heels of the much lauded Torchwood: Aliens Among Us series, James Goss and Scott Handcock continue in their respective roles of producer and script editor/director. Together with a talented pool of writers (including award-winning Doctor Who scribe John Dorney), this creative team could be on to a surefire hit with this 4CD set.
A Full Cast miniseries in a 3CD boxset. Starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, Naoko Mori as Toshiko Sato and Burn Gorman as Owen Harper. Guest-starring Mac McDonald as Steve Ross and Arthur Darvill as Frank Layton.
The Church of the Outsiders believe that mankind must ascend to the stars in order to evolve. Dr Owen Harper believes that the Church is a dangerous cult that must be stopped. Captain Jack Harkness believes he may be the Church’s salvation… Why grab it? Whilst all the leads have starred in their own adventures for Big Finish, this is the first time all five of them have been brought together for a classic Torchwood tale. It’s a real ensemble piece, with each of member of the team given their moment to shine. With Guy Adams (More Than This, Outbreak) on writing duties, this 3CD box set could be one of the highlights of the year.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Burn Gorman as Owen Harper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.
Deep in the Welsh countryside, an alien signal calls an ancient battlefleet to Earth. Two Torchwood agents are sent to stop it, but while Ianto loves the outdoors, Owen is a far less happy camper…! The Torchwood range continues to mix things up, throwing the eager tea boy and the sarcastic medical officer together on a mission posing as campers. Written by Ianto himself, this setup should make good use of both David-Lloyd’s sharp sense of humour and his local knowledge of the Welsh countryside.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Kai Owen as Rhys Williams.
Gwen and Rhys are escaping disaster in a hatchback. Driving through the night, they must keep their wits about them to survive. Lost, alone and afraid, can they truly trust each other…? A tense character piece with a tinge of horror, this bottle episode from Guy Adams (Made You Look, Moving Target) looks to push Gwen and Rhys’ relationship to the limit.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Samuel Barnett as Norton Folgate and Tom Price as Sergeant Andy Davidson.
Strange things can be found on the streets of 1950s Soho: gangsters, alien artefacts, and a 21st century Welsh police officer are just the start of it… The comedic combination that made previous Torchwood adventure Ghost Mission a delight are reunited – Sergeant Andy playing the down-to-earth straight man opposite the morally ambiguous and camp-as-Christmas Norton. Writer James Goss has hit on the canny idea of inverting the premise of the previous Andy/Norton tale, bringing Andy to the ‘50s to act as Norton’s assessor. With Andy as a temporal fish out of water, this one has a flavour of ‘Torchwood does Life on Mars’.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Naoko Mori as Toshiko Sato.
Think of all the people who annoy you in life. The irritants, the frustration artists and the nagging little so-and-sos that make life difficult. Imagine you could silence them just by thinking. Would you do it…? It’s something different from the Torchwood range, with heavy-hitting writers David Llewellyn (Uncanny Valley), James Goss (Corpse Day) and Jonathan Morris (Doctor Who: Static) collaborating on a single script. The play’s themes of power and temptation should make for some good material for the insecure and often overlooked Tosh.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, guest starring John Sessions as Wilson.
Captain Jack Harkness has always had his suspicions about the Committee. And now Wilson is also talking about the Committee. Apparently the world really is under the control of alien lizards. That’s what Wilson says. People have died, disasters have been staged, the suspicious have disappeared. It’s outrageous. Only Jack knows that Wilson is right. The Committee has arrived.
An original Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, guest starring Lisa Zahra as Zeynep.
Trapped aboard a crashing spacecraft, Ianto Jones has no choice but to call a customer service line. Caught in a desperate situation, Ianto will need to call on his resourcefulness, as well as his signature deadpan humour, in order to get out alive. Writer James Goss has incredibly good form with Torchwood in general and the character of Ianto in particular, having penned Torchwood novels and audio drama in the past, and this release proves something special.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Kai Owen as Rhys Williams.
Having said goodbye to the Torchwood life several years ago, Gwen and Rhys must return to face the strange when they receive a mysterious phone call. Soon they are investigating otherworldly goings on in an old, isolated nursing home with a mysterious connection to a certain ‘Jack’… Set after the last television series of Torchwood, Miracle Day, this is the first of Big Finish’s Torchwood plays to explore new ground, unburdened by having to tie into a future television episode. The possibilities await…
An original Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Tracy-Ann Oberman as Yvonne Hartman, guest starring Dan Starkey as Ross and Catrin Stewart as Meredith.
Searching for an alien artefact, Yvonne Hartman comes to a Cardiff in crisis – the mayor is dead, and a murderous alien stalks the streets. It’s only a matter of time before Yvonne finds herself caught up in bloodthirsty conflict… Big Finish and Torchwood veteran Joseph Lidster here shines a light on the cold, duty-bound Yvonne Hartman – an unusual yet inspired choice of character – proving that Big Finish are willing to go out on a limb so early on in their run of Torchwood plays. Tracy-Ann Oberman’s turn as the charismatic, in-over-her-head antihero is enthralling.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, guest starring Steven Cree (Outlander) as Neil Redmond.
Jack comes face to face with a distinctly unusual android in this tale of reclusive billionaires and dark, hidden forces. It’s the penultimate tale in the first series of Torchwood ala Big Finish, hinting at further details about the shadowy Committee.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, guest starring Rowena Cooper as Queen Victoria, with Louise Jameson, Youssef Kerkour and Aaron Neil.
It’s Torchwood: The Early Years as Jack is joined on an alien hunt by a certain royal visitor. Showcasing a hidden era of Torchwood that was barely touched in the TV programme, new writer AK Benedict offers a romp on the streets of London, though it’s not without those character moments that have typified the high quality of the series thus far.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Tom Price as Sergeant Andy, guest starring Samuel Barnett as Assessor Norton.
Andy gets a chance to prove whether he has what it takes to join Torchwood, but it won’t be an easy interview – his assessor is decidedly stricter, and more spectral, than most. The comedic double act of Price and Barnett make delightful work of a script from the perennially witty James Goss.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Indira Varma as Suzie Costello, guest starring Naomi McDonald as Alex.
The planet Earth is frozen in time. Only target specimens remain active. The hunt is on, but can Suzie save the last woman standing from getting caught in the crosshairs? Or even save herself? Having been killed off in Torchwood’s opening episode, the character of Suzie remains ripe for exploration. What set her down the path that resulted in her betrayal? What sort of qualities did Jack see in her when he recruited her? She must have been a good person once. Mustn’t she?
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto.
Ianto is at his lowest point following the death of his girlfriend Lisa. Lost, he goes to somewhere he can feel safe – his local pub. But when Jack turns up, everything changes… Gareth and John have already been back for Big Finish, but this is the first production to feature the pair of them in years. The tale promises to show the journey from Ianto’s disgust with his boss in Cyberwoman to his open flirtatiousness later in the first season, but can it live up to the hype?
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, guest-starring Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch) as Darkness.
Those who visit the seaside town of Talmouth never seem to come back. It could be simple disappearances, or aliens, or that shadowy presence in the corner of your eye. It’s time Gwen Cooper paid a visit… Having largely focused on character-driven pieces so far, this release sees the Torchwood range go for full-blooded psychological horror. Prepare for something intimate, chilling and very Torchwood.
A Full Cast miniseries in a 3CD boxset, set prior to the Battle of Canary Wharf. Starring Tracy-Ann Oberman as Yvonne Hartman and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, and introducing Sophia Winkleman as Rachel Allan.
Yvonne Hartman is Torchwood’s golden girl who can do no wrong – until one day, she makes a mistake that just might plunge planet Earth into an interstellar war… Despite a few mishaps, the Torchwood Three team are basically the good guys. It’s not so clear cut with Torchwood One, who are decidedly more militaristic than their Cardiff cousins. This box set allows some exploration of that moral ambiguity, along with revealing hitherto unknown aspects of Ianto’s pre-Torchwood Three life and viewing the whole organisation through the eyes of a newcomer.
A Full Cast miniseries in a 3CD boxset, set prior to Children of Earth. Starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, with Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, Tom Price as PC Andy and Samuel Barnett as Norton Folgate.
When a medical trial goes wrong, a virus begins to spread through the streets of Cardiff. It isn’t long before an infection of madness swarms the population, and the government have the city locked down. But Jack knows there’s something more to this virus than first meets the eye – he’s encountered it before, and he knows it’s alien… Where previous Torchwood releases have had one or two main characters to focus on, the ensemble approach allows for a different emphasis to come forth from the drama, with a greater scope for action and the ability to tell stories on a much larger scale. This medical thriller in three parts should test the format well.
