Torchwood 1.1: Everything Changes

To help deal with my CV lockdown (or whatever we call it), I’m taking advantage of the Torchwood boxsets on iPlayer. First up, Everything Changes.

Writer James Goss is in fine form in Goodbye Piccadily weaving a historical tale into Torchwood and bringing back Big Finish’s own Norton Folgate (Samuel Barnett) alongside Sgt Andy (Tom Price). It starts as it means to go on, and it’s all Andy can do to hang on for the ride…

Torchwood: Corpse Day review

Well, James Goss has been at it again with another fantastic, if dark [even by Torchwood standards] story in Corpse Day.
