Following the huge success of Torchwood: Lost Souls, which was broadcast as part of Radio 4’s Big Bang season last year, the Torchwood cast are set to return to the airwaves in three brand new Torchwood radio plays.

Three 45 minute episodes will air in Radio 4’s Afternoon Play slot at 2.15pm. The three new radio plays bridge the gap between Torchwood: Lost Souls and the upcoming Torchwood: Children of Earth television series.

The episodes feature Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles) and Ianto (Gareth David-Lloyd) and have been recorded over the last two weeks. The episodes will be broadcast in advance of Torchwood: Children of Earth and will be available in the UK on BBC iPlayer and as a download for 7 days after broadcast.

Asylum by Anita Sullivan
The story of a teen runaway called Freda who is brought to the attention of Torchwood by PC Andy. As Gwen, Jack and Ianto investigate where this troubled girl has come from, Andy finds himself drawn closer than ever before into the world of Torchwood.

Golden Age by James Goss
Torchwood go to India to investigate the disappearance of hundreds of people. The trail leads them to an old colonial club which seems strangely stuck in the past as does its young and beautiful owner, the Duchess.

The Dead Line by Phil Ford
A series of mysterious phone calls lead Jack into danger, and result in ‘a very emotional moment for Ianto’.

BBC Radio 4 is available in the UK on 92-96FM, on digital or online at bbc.co.uk/radio4

In one epic story told over five nights the new series, to be broadcast for the first time on BBC One later this year, promises to be Torchwood‘s greatest adrenalin-fuelled, high octane adventure yet.

Torchwood: Children of Earth re-joins Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) who are still coming to terms with the death of two of their closest friends. Despite their pain, they have a job to do.

This time they are faced with their fiercest threat to date – one which throws the future of Torchwood and the entire human race spiralling into danger. They battle against the odds but do they stand a chance of saving mankind?

Soon the household is invaded and the rest of the servants are rounded up and thrown in the cellar, where the content of the carriage is being held. Father Angelo, the leader of the monks, enters and prays that God has mercy on his soul for what he is about to do. He removes the cloth covering the cage before him and the servants scream in terror… Continue reading

I thought it would never end…”

“How long are you going to stay with me?”

“That’s what I thought. But then came the army of ghosts; then came Torchwood and the war. And that’s when it all ended. This is the story of how I died…” Continue reading
