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.
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.

Once in a blue moon, Cardiff police teams up with Torchwood to work on an unsolved case. Andy is looking forward to an exciting day, whilst Owen expects nothing more than the usual. One of them is right… This script from acclaimed author James Goss (Fall To Earth) takes a look at the underexplored chalk-and-cheese combination of Andy and Owen: one of them full of life, the other an undead cynic.

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.

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.

In German-occupied Paris, inside a hidden room, the Third Reich are about to learn the secrets of Torchwood… By populating this intriguing period drama with all-new characters, writer Lizzie Hopley has raised the stakes as no-one is safe from being killed off. 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.
Torchwood Series 5 has begun with this special 4CD set. Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles), Rhys (Kai Owen) and Andy (Tom Price) are back, and ready to lead Torchwood into a new age.
Torchwood has returned from the dead, but Cardiff is a changed city. When fear grips the population, the new Torchwood will have to go to extreme lengths just to ensure their survival… With new characters and scenarios co-created by original showrunner Russell T Davies, writers James Goss (Ghost Mission), Juno Dawson (The Dollhouse) and AK Benedict (The Victorian Age) are ready to take Torchwood into a new era.

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.
Continuing on from Aliens Among Us 1, the Torchwood Series 5 regulars – led by Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Andy Davidson (Tom Price) – square off against old foe Bilis Manger (Murray Melvin) in this 4CD set.
The post-Miracle Day adventures continue with terror threats, luxury apartments, sinister tech start-ups and police shootings. And with stories ripped from the headlines and given a Torchwood twist, Aliens Among Us continues to be a very grounded sci-fi series. The return of Bilis Manger, last seen fleeing the son of the Beast at the end of Series 1, provides a link from Torchwood present to Torchwood past.

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.
