Torchwood: Lost Souls (Dramatised) | [Joseph Lidster]

Torchwood: Lost Souls (Dramatised)

Martha Jones, ex-time traveler, has been called to CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, in Geneva. They're about to activate the Large Hadron Collider, designed to recreate conditions after the Big Bang and thus give an insight into what the Universe is made of. But so much could go wrong: it could open a gateway to a parallel dimension, or even create a black hole.

Publisher's Summary

The Torchwood team and Martha face danger at CERN in this special BBC radio episode, starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd, and Freema Agyeman.

Following the tragic deaths of two of their colleagues, only Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, and Ianto Jones remain of Torchwood, protecting humanity against the unknown.

Martha Jones, ex-time traveller and now working as a doctor for UNIT, has been called to CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, in Geneva. They're about to activate the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), designed to recreate conditions after the Big Bang and thus give an insight into what the universe is made of. But so much could go wrong: it could open a gateway to a parallel dimension, or even create a black hole.

Voices from the past are calling out to people from the LHC, and scientists have started to disappear. Where have they gone? What is lurking in the underground tunnel - and do the dead ever really stay dead?

Based on the award-winning BBC Wales TV production Torchwood, "Lost Souls" stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd and Freema Agyeman, with Lucy Montgomery, Stephen Critchlow, and Mark Meadows.

    "A great fill in between seasons"

    Like the audio books, this narration is a great fill-in between the second and third seasons. In fact, that is exactly what it is.

    Owen and Tosh's funerals have come and gone and the remianing Torchwood team are trying to pull themselves together again. Martha (from Doctor Who, for those of you new to Torchwood) calls on them to help her with a strange case in Switzerland, where she continues to work for UNIT. Jack, Ianto, and Gwen hop on a plane to come to her aid.

    The story is the length of an actual TV episode, minus the commercials. There are special effects and music. Each character is narrated by the actor who plays them on TV, making this audio especially fun to listen too. The story is interesting and it was fun to have a case that takes place outside of their normal jurisdiction.

    Have a listen while you (and I) wait for the third season to premiere.

    "Lost Souls return to the radio, true to form"

    Lost Souls is a radio dramatization, featuring the cast of Torchwood and set between its second season and their appearance in season four of Doctor Who. Written by Joseph Lidster, who's written for the show on television, Lost Souls is a Torchwood tie-in to the Large Hadron Collider's initialization day.

    While the story takes advantage of the full cast, I'm not sure it took advantage of the audio medium. Some scenes, especially the introduction of the cast, seem like they would have played better on the television screen.

    It also seemed like the LHC tie-in was played too much; it seemed like the audience was being fed more technical background than they would have for something that didn't exist in the real world.

    Despite those, though, Lost Souls was still an enjoyable story. I would have rated it at 4/5 starts...

    ...except the promised "Torchwood All-Access Bonus Feature" (see the cover art) is missing from here, so I'm docking the score to reflect that. Caveat emptor.

    "Whoops there go those wacky humans again"

    While it's nice to have Martha Jones on an adventure, especially when voiced by Freema Agyeman she's pretty underused here, this is a pretty linear and at times plodding tale. There is only one real 'twist' and while it's done well enough it will hardly be a shock to the savvy listener. The cast perform well and there are references to events from Season 2 so any fan that hasn't viewed that far may want to steer clear for now. It's an enjoyable listen and any fan will likely go away happy.
