It’s far from being over for Torchwood as they return for more misadventures in 2020
It’s been a busy few days for John Barrowman. Not only has the Captain Jack star returned at last to the world of Doctor Who on TV, but his further audio adventures with Torchwood for Big Finish have been announced. That’s right, Cardiff’s most clandestine team of elite operatives will return in a new monthly series of Big Finish full-cast audio dramas. Beginning in April 2020, they’re available to pre-order individually or in bundles from today!
The continuing series was originally created for television by Russell T Davies and ran for four seasons. Since 2015, it’s been produced on audio by Big Finish Productions, in association with BBC Studios. The Torchwood team is led by the irrepressible Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), former Time Agent, former companion to the Doctor, and recent Fugitive of the Judoon guest star. These all-new adventures find members of the Torchwood team caught up in a series of perilous events.
February’s release, Dissected, features Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) co-starring in their first Torchwood story together since 2008. Then, after a brief respite from alien incursions in March, the Torchwood team will reasse
April: Tropical Beach Sounds and Other Seascapes Vol 4 by Tim Foley
May: Iceberg by Grace Knight
June: Dinner and a Show by Gareth David-Lloyd
July: Save Our Souls by Scott Handcock
Already confirmed to return are Owen Harper (Burn Gorman), Toshiko Sato (Naoko Mori), Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) and Queen Victoria herself (Rowena Cooper). And there will be plenty more surprises along the way.
James Goss, who is the Producer for Torchwood, noted this as a perfect jumping on point for fans. “If you’ve never listened to a Torchwood audio adventure before, now’s a great time. The next set of stories are unpredictable, messy, sometimes funny, and sometimes horrible. In these four announced titles alone, an alien opera arrives in Cardiff, Queen Victoria battles ghosts from the future, a Mars Base turns up just off the A474, and a malevolent entity takes over the voice of… well, you’ll just have to wait and see…”
So if the Jack’s Doctor Who return has only made you hungry for more, Big Finish is on hand to help.
