A Sontaran carries on camping in The Great Sontaran War

Sontar-ha! There’s a Sontaran camping in the Mumbles in October’s monthly Torchwood adventure, commemorating 15 years of the blockbusting Doctor Who spin-off. First broadcast on British television screens on 22 October 2006, Torchwood has since expanded its universes on audio with beloved characters and brand-new encounters. In this autumn’s full cast audio adventure, Gareth David-Lloyd returns as Ianto Jones alongside Dan Starkey. Starkey plays the mighty Major Kreg, in a tale of caravans, tinned goods and a Sontaran discovering the Internet…

Writer James Goss, who’s been responsible for some of Torchwood and Doctor Who’s wildest and funniest stories, says  “To celebrate Torchwood‘s 15th anniversary we’ve done what everyone expected – teaming Ianto Jones up with a Sontaran on a caravan park in Swansea. Gareth and Dan make for a brilliant duo as Major Kreg conducts his survey into human nature; taking in capitalism, soup-making, checkouts and pets. It’s a pairing for the ages. Will we finally learn what started the Great Sontaran War?”
