Torchwood 1.8: They Keep Killing Suzie

My Torchwood rewatch has stalled a little, and I’ve neglected to keep the log up to date. I re-watched They Keep Killing Suzie ages ago, and never got around to writing it up! It’s time for Suzie Costello to take centre stage, and that despite being killed already! I was impressed with this episode at…

Torchwood 1.3: Ghost Machine

Another of my occasional looks back at Torchwood series 1 takes me to Ghost Machine. My memory of the original transmission is I liked this story and found it better focused on story than the previous Day One. Now I rewatch it I think it’s absolutely tremendous. I’l try to capture why I think that…

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…

Torchwood: The Future’s so bright we gotta wear shades!

Big Finish has confirmed another run of stories for Team Torchwood, and to celebrate Ianto, Gwen, Jack, Toshiko and Owen have booked a holiday (if you trust the picture!). The new batch of twelve Torchwood tales starts in April 2020 – we have some details…

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 vs Doctor Who Monsters announced

Just a few days before Big Finish Day 2018 (so what’s announced then?!) is an intriguing set of details about the 2019-20 run of Torchwood monthly titles from Big Finish. The covers give away some details of the first four releases: each is a crossover with a monster from Doctor Who!

Torchwood: Believe review

Set during the show’s second season, Torchwood: Believe gives fans the full-cast adventure they’ve wanted since Big Finish first produced the range. There’s no Rhys, but we do have Jack, Gwen, Ianto, Owen and Toshiko. It’s a three-disc story from the mighty pen of Guy Adams, directed by Scott Handcock.

Torchwood: We Always Get Out Alive review on CultBox

Torchwood: We Always Get Out Alive is another rock-solid Guy Adams story, and another jewel in the crown of the monthly Torchwood range. I put some thoughts behind that opinion in a piece for CultBox: Torchwood: We Always Get Out Alive review. === Message Ends ===  

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us Part 3 review

With its third four-disc boxset, series 5 of Torchwood comes to a end, even if not every storyline gets a conclusion. If nothing else, there is plenty that could (should?) happen, and a follow-on series would be most welcome. Meanwhile, back in Cardiff, a surprise visitor has upset several apple-carts at Torchwood. Welcome back Yvonne Hartman!…

Torchwood Believe announced

Great (and surprise) news for Torchwood fans today as Big Finish announces Torchwood: Believe a full-cast drama with Captain Jack, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper and Toshiko Santo!

Torchwood Aliens Among Us Part 2 review

We’re back in alien-infested Cardiff for another boxset of in the new era of Torchwood with Aliens Among Us Part 2. Just to remind, there are new aliens (Ng and Orr), new members of the team (Colchester in particular), we still have Gwen, Rhys, Sgt Andy and Captain Jack, along with others such as Tyler and…

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us 1 review

So, we now have the first set of Torchwood stories set in what would have been (so we are informed) the fifth series of the TV show. Heavily informed by Children of Earth and ignoring (so far, and I hope permanently) Miracle Day, this is a Phoenix like rebirth in the city of Cardiff and more than just a set…
