Big Finish have revealed details of upcoming Torchwood releases, leading to a devilish Hallowe’en special

Big Finish Productions’ long-running monthly series of full-cast Torchwood audio dramas follows characters from throughout the universe of the popular Doctor Who spin-off. Story, writers and cast details are revealed today for four upcoming releases, featuring multiple names new to the range.

July’s Art Decadence introduces a new era of Torchwood’s history, the Roaring Twenties, and some brand-new stars in the shape of top agent Sir Reginald Dellafield (Wilf Scolding) and his trusty butler sidekick A. C. Forster (Simon Kane).

In August, Naoko Mori returns to the role of Toshiko Sato for the first time in over a year, in End Game, a story which sees her involved in a simulated apocalypse.

There’s another returning star of the Torchwood TV series in September’s The Hollow Choir. Rhys Williams (Kai Owen) is on a rescue mission, in a script that marks the Big Finish debut of acclaimed horror and science fiction authors Helen Marshall and Malcolm Devlin.

And Widdershins, released in October, is the range’s Halloween special. With a script by Guy Adams, it stars Cerith Flinn (Wolfblood) as a man haunted by the Devil – or perhaps by Torchwood.

Meanwhile, the cover for July’s Torchwood: Soho boxset, Ascension, has also been unveiled. The six episode mystery reunites the 1950s Torchwood team of Norton, Andy, and Gideon as they investigate the mass disappearances of religious congregations. Could the Rapture really be at hand?

Writer James Goss describes Ascension as featuring Norton goes to Heaven – Lizbeth goes to Siberia – Gideon visits Stonehenge – Andy makes jam. Plus government conspiracies, mysterious aliens, and hats.”

The full synopses for upcoming Torchwood releases

Art Decadence by Ash Darby, July

London in the 1920s and Sir Reggie works for Torchwood, saving the world from alien invasions. Really, he relies on the services of his loyal butler while he paints the town red. 

But there’s a new sensation in high society – What is the secret of The Serpentine Club and can Forster save his master from it? 

Torchwood: Soho – Ascension by James Goss, July

Is the end of the world really nigh? A number of groups believe so – and what’s odder, they’re all vanishing.

Have they really gone to heaven, or is something far worse happening? It’s Torchwood. Obviously something far worse is happening.

End Game by Tom Black, August

You have been brought to Secure Control Room B to respond to a simulated emergency.  

You will be able to issue orders and make real time decisions in a disaster scenario.  

Welcome to the end of the world. Shall we begin? 

The Hollow Choir by Helen Marshall and Malcolm Devlin, September

There’s always been something in the caves. Over the years people have gone in and not come out. But that was a long time ago. They’ve been sealed for the best part of a century.  

Eight hours ago, something changed. Three students somehow found their way in. Now time’s running out to rescue them. Their one hope is a man called Rhys Williams. Because somehow, he has a map. 

Widdershins by Guy Adams, October

One night long ago, Iain tried to raise the Devil. He walked the wrong way round an ancient stone in the village graveyard. He didn’t think anything would happen, not really.  

But something did. Something far worse than the Devil came to Llandyth.  

And now, many years later, Iain’s trying to work out what really happened that night. Did Torchwood ruin his life?
