A Full Cast Audio Adventure on a single CD, starring Indira Varma as Suzie Costello and Annette Badland as Margaret Blaine/Blon Slitheen.
When a spaceship crashes outside Cardiff, both Suzie Costello and Margaret Blaine see a golden opportunity for themselves – and each is willing to kill the other in order to get what they want. But when an alien device ties them together, they will have to set aside their competing interests in order to escape from the police, Torchwood, and the warp missiles that threaten to destroy half the planet… Pairing Suzie with Margaret is an inspired move – both characters are authority figures with their own secret agenda and both have complex relationships with their respective families. Writer Lisa McMullin (UNIT: Tempest) should provide a memorable adventure for this unlikely duo.
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!
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 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.
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 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.
