The Torchwood team are back! Not quite on television but as audio adventures. Big Finish prductions have announced that they will be doing brand new audio adventures which will see the return of Captain Jack and his team!
Captain Jack will return in a 6 part audio series as part of the licensing deal with the BBC Worldwide. Obviously Torchwood will still have Jack as the boss. John Barrowman was the one who broke the news on the radio.
The Series will have one adventure focusing on one character of the team. For example Episode 1 will be based around Jack. Then Episode 2 will be based around someone else. The adventures will focus on a "mysterious event" that has happened to them before. Episode 1 is called "Torchwood: The Conspiracy" which is written by David Llewellyn, which is released September 2015. It will be based around Captain Jack as I said before.
“What’s great about Torchwood is that it is as unstoppable as Captain Jack and just as persuasive. Torchwood has been a ratings success on nearly every BBC channel, and it’s one of the few UK series to translate to America. It’s already been a series of iPlayer-topping audio plays, and we are thrilled to continue it. It’s just so exciting to be starting off the range with a drama starring John Barrowman – he leapt at the chance to display a whole new side to Captain Jack." - James Goss (Producer)
The rest of the cast members are yet to be announced. You can pre order these new audio adventures already as part of a subscription or individually.
“Torchwood is something we’ve wanted to do for ages. It has great characters and there are many stories to be told. Our mission is to bring a whole new series of dramatic adventures to life. We’re starting off with these more intimate, focused releases and will then move on to bigger casts and even wider scope. We’re very much looking forward to working with all the cast and it’s been such a pleasure liaising with Russell T Davies about this. He couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful. Our Torchwood producer, James Goss, has really hit the ground running and his tangible enthusiasm is already proving rather an inspiration to us.” - Nicholas Briggs (Executive Producer)
