Big Finish has announced details of the most varied selection of new Torchwood titles I can remember since they started. Hold onto your hats! Sgt Andy Davidson is fresh from Baker Street and the Eighth Doctor Stranded range and here he is, back in Torchwood and on Mars! Full details follow…
Mars, Monkeys and the Ferryman
Here’s the Big Finish press release:
Revealed! Story details and cover artworks for five new full-cast audio adventures in Big Finish’s monthly Torchwood range, to be released throughout 2020.
Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the police. Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. And now tackling five new cases that will take them from an ancient asylum to a backyard barbeque.
Returning to their familiar Torchwood roles in these five stories are Burn Gorman (as Owen Harper), Gareth David-Lloyd (as Ianto Jones), Tom Price (as Andy Davidson), Kai Owen (as Rhys Williams) and Rowena Cooper (as Queen Victoria).
Cover artworks for these forthcoming adventures will be revealed on the Big Finish website and social channels every day from 7-10 July 2020.
Each of these Torchwood monthly releases is available for pre-order as a collector’s edition CD at £10.99 or as a digital download at £8.99, exclusively from the Big Finish website at www.bigfinish.com.
Story details and release dates are as follows:
Red Base by James Goss (August 2020)
Mars is the next giant leap for mankind. Starr Base is the first small step. A practice Mars base has been set up in a quarry in Neath, just off the A474. Its aim is to see if humanity can survive on the red planet. The problem is that the crew are dying.
The survivors are terrified, paranoid, and wondering if something alien has got inside Starr Base. Sgt Andy Davidson has come to find out what’s gone wrong.
Ex Machina by Alfie Shaw (September 2020)
Ianto Jones is Torchwood. Ianto Jones is the defender of a deserted city, a lone crusader who keeps the empty streets safe.
One day he meets one of the few survivors. She needs his help – because she’s being chased by a darkness. A darkness which says it loves her.
The Three Monkeys by James Goss (October 2020)
Andy Davidson’s been ordered to watch over a local businessman. Everything’s always gone right for him, and Andy’s long wondered why.
Owen joins him on the stakeout. He knows something – the businessman’s attracted Torchwood’s attention, and tonight, the two of them are going to take him down. But will luck be on their side?
Rhys and Ianto’s Excellent Barbeque by Tim Foley (November 2020)
Rhys is planning a lads’ night in. Barbie in the back yard, few tins, mates and bants. But the only person who turns up is Ianto. Who hasn’t been invited. Hell is other people, especially when they’ve brought board games.
Something goes wrong. The two of them could be trapped together for eternity at a barbeque where the sausages never cook, and worse, the brewskis remain forever out of reach.
The Crown by Jonathan Barnes (December 2020)
The Ferryman stands in shadow and waits.
The Ferryman giggles, hungers and hates.
The Ferryman comes to carry away
All who behold the crown and disobey
Christmas Eve. Dr Gideon Parr is summoned to an asylum to check on a patient. A patient who claims to be hunted by a terrible curse. A patient who claims to be Queen Victoria.
