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. I won’t watch them all, just enough to really remind myself what I thought of it all before this blog! Everything Changes (for Gwen Cooper) First impressions are it’s as…

Here’s something to get excited about – Freema Agyeman has recorded a Big Finish story! Yes, Martha Jones comes to Big Finish!

Torchwood: Night of the Fendahl review

The 2019 Torchwood meets Doctor Who monsters season began with the April release, Night of the Fendahl. Perhaps not the most obvious of classic monsters to revisit, in the hands of writer Tim Foley it’s a superb listen (and let’s not forget the sound work of Mark Hendrick.)

Torchwood: Made You Look review on Cultbox

My review for Torchwood: Made You Look is now on CultBox: ‘Torchwood’ review: Season 2 of Big Finish’s audios concludes with ‘Made You Look’. I liked it, but did feel it wasn’t as excellent as the others in this range. Given how good they are, this is not an issue at all and I recommend it. — Message Ends…

Torchwood: Forgotten Lives review

In a bold stroke, the Big Finish Torchwood range grabs the headlines in Forgotten Lives, with two returning characters and sets a high-tide mark. We get Eve Myles and Kai Owen back as husband and wife Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, and learn this story is set years after Miracle Day. Emma Reeves (prolific writer for BBC, including Tracy Beaker)…

Tom Price triggers more Torchwood news

In a suspiciously interesting chance phone call, BBC Radio Wales DJ Tom Price, aka Sgt Andy Davison from Torchwood, is disappointed not to be approached to be in the new Torchwood audios from Big Finish. What else is there to do but phone your old chum Kai Owen and find out what he knows? By chance Kai is on and the…
