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 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!
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper.
Many years ago, something unspeakable happened at Fetch Priory. And now, a production crew have arrived at the place where it all happened, shooting a cheap and nasty horror film based on the events of that terrible time. But when the crew discover that the horrors of the past have intruded on the present, it’s up to one of the cast – secretly a Torchwood agent – to stop the manifestation of Death itself… Producer James Goss and director/script editor Scott Handcock have hit on a canny idea, importing some familiar Doctor Who monsters into Torchwood, where they stand to benefit from the strong characterisation, adult tone and moral complexity that typify the range. Launching with the Fendahl – an underexplored classic series monster with loads of potential for cosmic horror – is a brilliant move and writer Tim Foley (other credits?) should provide plenty of chills.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and Katy Manning as Jo Jones (nee Grant).
Years after she parted company with the Doctor, Jo returns to Llanfairfach to find the old mining town transformed into a thriving economy built on green technology. But when an encounter with a mysterious man leads her down the old mine shaft she discovers that beneath the town’s bright exterior lies a hive of wriggling pests – GIANT MAGGOTS! Torchwood’s Welsh setting makes it a natural fit for a sequel to iconic Third Doctor story The Green Death, and this script sees beloved characters from different eras collide. With the joyful optimism of Jo counterbalanced with Jack’s rather harsher outlook on life, the two have the makings of a great double act. AND THERE ARE MAGGOTS IN IT!

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 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 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…

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?

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.

Prepare for something intimate, chilling and very Torchwood.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, guest-starring Nerys Hughes as Brenda Williams.
Rhys is visiting his Mum in hospital – she’s just had her hip done. Nothing serious, nothing life threatening. Or at least it shouldn’t be… The unconventional decision to return to the character of Brenda demonstrates that the Torchwood range is not afraid of taking risks. This mother-and-son team have all the makings of a fine double act: as two of the most down-to-earth Torchwood characters, their reactions to the fantastical situation they find themselves in should be a treat.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Naoko Mori as Toshiko Sato.
Internet piracy. It’s harmless, right? But what if the download doesn’t quite work and you end up with a corrupted file? Worse, what if the file was hiding something malicious, like a virus? Worse still, what if a download could kill you…? Writer Scott Handcock serves up a proper modern sci-fi tale, dealing with the implications of everyday technology. Tosh’s technical background makes her the ideal lead character for a story like this, with the subject matter promising both an unconventional narrative and a highly distinctive sound design.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.
There are stories about a strange empty office building in Cardiff. An office with flickering lights and faces pressed against the glass. An office that calls out for one Ianto Jones… Ianto is typically vulnerable when under pressure, so putting him through a spookfest provides some interesting character material. Sublime scribe James Goss has no trouble capturing Ianto’s voice, having already penned the critically acclaimed Fall To Earth.

The current run of single-disc Torchwood plays hasn’t been afraid to try new things, and this concluding instalment looks to close the season off in appropriately dramatic style.
John Barrowman and Eve Myles lead the Torchwood Series 5 ensemble in this 4CD set as Captain Jack and Gwen, joined by Kai Owen as Rhys, Tom Price as Andy and the surprising return of Tracy-Ann Oberman as Yvonne Hartman.
A wave of vigilante crime, the coming of the apocalypse and the double-date from hell. It could only be Torchwood… Meet the new boss – same as the old boss! Former head of Torchwood One Yvonne Hartman is back from the dead and she wants Torchwood Three for herself. Throwing her into the mix raises the stakes for Jack and his team as the Aliens Among Us story arc reaches its gripping conclusion.
A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and James Marsters as Captain John Hart, with Eve Myles as Gwen, Kai Owen as Rhys, Tom Price as Sgt Andy, Samuel Barnett as Norton Folgate and Rowena Cooper as Queen Victoria!
There’s a new head of Torchwood. He likes puppies, Napoleonic jackets and using time travel to get whatever the hell he likes. His name is Captain John Hart… Captain John was perhaps the most memorable villain in all of Torchwood’s original run on television. To have him back and having stolen Jack’s position is an utterly delicious idea, one that veteran Torchwood writer David Llewellyn (The Conspiracy, Uncanny Valley) is sure to run with.
