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…

Doctor Who Stranded 1.3 Must-see TV

The first Eighth Doctor set of Stranded stories continues (from Wild Animals) with Lisa McMullin’s Must-see TV. The Doctor, Liv and Helen are still trapped in London 2020, and we have arrivals in the form of Sgt Andy Davidson (Tom Price) and Mr Bird (Clive Wood). Science fiction is back on the agenda but we’re…

Torchwood Soho — Parasite details released

Big Finish has announced details for upcoming Torchwood boxset — Torchwood Soho — Parasite. It is (of course) more adventures for Sgt Andy Davison, fresh from Baker Street in Doctor Who: Stranded (or maybe before?!) and Norton Folgate. Lots of great actors and a different type of storytelling. Good news is Big Finish still expects…

Torchwood: Goodbye Piccadilly review

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…

River Song 5.4 Concealed Weapon review

River’s sojourn with various incarnations of the Master comes to an end with the Scott Handcock story Concealed Weapon. This time it’s Derek Jacobi’s War Master whom River crosses paths with in a story that seems curiously clear cut and that’s how it draws the listener in… Spoilers will follow;-)

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. Notable anyhow for being the first return for Burn Gorman as Dr Owen Harper, with Tom Price also appearing as PC Andy Davidson. It’s got a big cast, a powerful story and packs a real punch…

Torchwood Outbreak announced

Well, now we know at least one of the recent secret projects is a November 2016 release of a full-cast three-disc boxset Torchwood: Outbreak. The cast includes John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd, Kai Owen and Tom Price. This was announced on the latest podcast. That still leaves four stories unaccounted for! <-> Message Ends <->

Torchwood: Ghost Mission reviewed on Cultbox

I reviewed Torchwood: Ghost Mission for Cultbox: ‘Torchwood’ audio review: Andy gets his chance in ‘Ghost Mission’. As ever this is great fun with superb chemistry between Tom Price’s Sgt Andy and Samuel Barnett as 1950s ghost Norton Folgate. James Goss deserves yet more congratulation and admiration for his script, and this is really enjoyable. -+[ Message Ends…

Nightshade reviewed

Nightshade is the latest in the series of rather ad hoc adaptations of Seventh Doctor  novels. Originally written for Virgin New Adventures by Mark Gatiss and adapted by Kyle C Szikora it gives us a Doctor in moody humour and this gives Ace plenty of chance to get to explore on her own as people in…

Torchwood More than This reviewed

It’s to Eve Myles to bring the first series of Big Finish Torchwood audios to a close in More Than This. Guy Adams (who wrote the wonderful Vienna story Big Society, also out this month. It’s a pillar to post tour round the everyday realities of Cardiff in the Torchwood universe in the company of Gwen Cooper, ably supported in a…

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…
