Publisher's Summary

John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd star in seven full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramas based on the hit BBC TV series.

In "Lost Souls" by Joseph Lidster, voices from the past are calling out from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and scientists are disappearing. Can Torchwood help? 'Asylum' by Anita Sullivan sees PC Andy Davidson turn to Torchwood after he arrests a very unusual shoplifter. 'Golden Age' by James Goss finds the team in Delhi, on the trail of a dangerous energy field. 'The Dead Line' by Phil Ford sees a Cardiff hospital inundated with patients who have fallen into coma-like trances, all of them by phone calls....

In 'The Devil and Miss Carew' by Rupert Laight, Gwen and Rhys are involved in a nursing home mystery. 'Submission' by Ryan Scott finds the Torchwood team at the mercy of a hungry alien at the bottom of the sea. Finally, 'The House of the Dead' by James Goss sees a special séance being held at the most haunted pub in Wales.

With a guest case including Freema Agyeman, Tom Price, Martin Jarvis and Rosalind Ayres, it includes a bonus behind-the-scenes feature, "Torchwood: All Access". Duration: 5 hours 25 mins approx.

Great Program

It was so good to have the cast of Torchwood back together again. The stories were very good, I thought and very well performed. The last story was a total surprise! Highly recommend.

Just like the show.

the episodes were just like the show. I'm glad they're wrapped in two different segments instead of trying to stretch this out into longer stories. I like the fact they brought the original cast back for the stories.

2 Thumbs Up fit Torchwood Fans!!!

I wish that there were MORE of these !! I miss the Show so much that I tried these Audible Shows and they are FANTASTIC! Fun to hear it done by the actual cast members. I read somewhere there will be one with the whole original cast. Will have to find it and purchase next!!

A great companion to the TV show

If you loved the first couple seasons of Torchwood, I highly recommend these BBC audio dramas. These stories are set after season 2, and are very well written and produced. If you like these plays, I really recommend the Big Finish audio dramas as well!

Plot Twist

The ending was surprising! Without giving it away I can say that the ending illuminated the deep love for Yanto that Jack is able to hide, even from himself.

Torchwood Revisited

It was great to hear these familiar voices! The stories were fine, some better than others, but I was listening to spend time with old friends, not to listen to complex plots. There were some reallllllllly sad bits at the end, to be fair.

Sci-fi fans love it!

I loved the TV series Torchwood and this Radio show lives up to it. It tells the story of Torchwood after the TV series ended. I love the full cast of characters and special effects. Since it is a radio production, the stories are faster paced than most audiobooks. Definitely worth it.

Fun for a long time fan

I don't know if I would recommend this to someone who doesn't know anything about Torchwood, but if you're already a fan, it was fun and well-done. Dead Line is a must hear for Ianto fans!

Outside the government, beyond the police.


Doctor Who spin-off, and anagram, Torchwood.

An easy listen, nothing taxing; seven episodes of Torchwood saving the world. Plus 15 minute documentary/ behind the scenes.

Previously four stories were available individually - I've included their current score/ratings:
- Lost Souls 4.1 (61 ratings)
- Asylum 4.2 (31 ratings)
- Golden Age 4.2 (37 ratings)
- The Dead Line 4.4 (40 ratings)

And the following three stories were collected under the title ‘The Lost Files’ 4.4 (81 ratings)
- The Devil and Miss Carew
- Submission
- The House of the Dead

A bit too light hearted for my tastes, though I did really enjoy ‘The House of the Dead’. That was an excellent story.
