Torchwood 1.4 Cyberwoman

My rewatch of Torchwood has finally drifted into series 1 episode 4, Cyberwoman by Chris Chibnall. I was unsure about it on transmission and I’m still unsure. I will try to explain why.

Torchwood on Mars and other 2020 releases

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…

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: Serenity review

Writer James Moran takes Jack and Ianto to Serenity Plaza, exclusive gated community. It’s very much Stepford Wives meets that X-files episode where Mulder & Scully pretend to be married (Arcadia). Neither of these are bad ideas and perhaps nowhere as bad as moving to Serenity Plaza to look for aliens! Welcome to Torchwood: Serenity!

Torchwood One – Latter Days review

What might (if they stick to the timeline) be the final Torchwood One release, Latter Days is a well-conceived piece of drama. There’s a simple idea running through – retirement and later life. It’s also a great set of stories for exploring Ianto and Yvonne Hartman.

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: The Last Beacon review

It’s Torchwood: The Last Beacon, it’s Ianto Jones and Owen Harper, it’s Gareth David-Lloyd’s first Big Finish credit as a writer. Gosh. You spoil us, once again Big Finish. So, it’s a title with much to recommend on paper, but does the actual produce live up to expectations? Short review: Yes. Long review? If you…

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!

Scott Handcock talks Ianto Jones

On his tumblr blog, Scott Handcock makes an impassioned plea to so-called Torchwood fans to give him and the Big Finish team some understanding and respect and to stop demanding Ianto Jones be resurrected. His post is here: Ianto Jones.

The return of Captain John

Another TV returnee to the Big Finish Torchwood range, this time James Masters is back as Captain John. The story is the wonderfully titled The Death of Captain Jack. David Llewellyn has tackled everything Torchwood in this story, and we are promised Ianto Jones, Norton Folgate, Rhys Williams, Queen Victoria ann PC Andy! The news item is: CAPTAIN JOHN…

Torchwood: The Office of Never Was review

Once again, James Goss demonstrates his mastery of the dramatic in this latest Torchwood release, The Office of Never Was. Gareth David-Lloyd stars as the much-missed Ianto Jones in this hour-long story set in a deserted office block. It starts spooky, and ends by explaining just how Ianto manages the ethical dilemmas working with Torchwood throws up. It’s…
