Continuing the curious yet rather fascinating run of Torchwood meets Doctor Who monsters is the wonderful The Green Life. It’s got Captain Jack, it’s got giant maggots, it’s got Jo Jones (Grant as was). Do you need to know more? Well it’s rather splendid and another David Llewellyn triumph. More? Well, let’s cover some ground…
Big Finish has announced another boxset for Captain John Hart (played by James Marsters). To be released in January 2020 it will be four stories written by David Llewellyn, and will also feature Captain Jack (John Barrowman). There’s also zombies, mad scientists, Oliver Cromwell’s head and bath tubs – something for everyone!
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!
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.
I wrote a review for Torchwood: The Death of Captain Jack for Starburst. I did enjoy this David Llewellyn story, though it was perhaps more entertainment than clever plotting. My review is: TORCHWOOD: THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN JACK. *** Message Ends ***
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!…
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!
