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.

This was a story made to be an audiobook & I LOVED it. I actually listened to it during while doing a long, tedious computer upgrade process & the time just flew by.

Having Martha appear (who was actually never one of my favorite Companions) made me slightly nervous but she was spot on as were all the others. This would have made for an ok television episode, nobody would have complained- but it made a great listening experience.

For the record, I'm finding the Torchwood audiobooks to be more compelling and true to character than the Doctor Who series.

When PC Andy Davidson arrests a young girl for shoplifting, he thinks it's going to be a routine case. That is, until he sees that she is carrying a gun. The girl is soaking wet, covered in mud, and the weapon is like nothing he's ever seen before. He knows that this is a case for Torchwood...

What a great idea. Not just hunting down aliens but integrating some of the less threatening ones into (humanoid-ish) into the population & the trials & tribulations that go along with that. I'm sure Jack, Ianto & Gwen could have some fun with that.
