Big Finish unite full original Torchwood cast for new audio adventure

January 24th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Big news for fans of the Doctor Who universe as Big Finish have announced they have brought together the full cast of Torchwood for their new adventure.

It’s always a big deal for fans when original cast members are tracked down and brought together and now fans love it more than the Whovians.

Here’s the details:

The full Torchwood team – Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper and Toshiko Sato – are reunited in this new full-cast drama.

The Torchwood team return for an exciting new mission with aliens, jeopardy and the best and worst of humanity in Torchwood: Believe, coming out this April.

Never before in the monthly Torchwood adventures, nor in the Torchwood Special Releases, has a Big Finish Torchwood adventure featured the full original Torchwood team!

The Church of the Outsiders believe that mankind is about to evolve, to reach out into the stars. Owen Harper believes that Torchwood has to do whatever it takes to stop them. 

“It’s been ten years since there’s been an adventure featuring Jack, Gwen, Ianto, Tosh and Owen,” says writer Guy Adams, “and coming up with something big enough – and complex enough – to need them was great fun. After all, taking down an entire religion isn’t easy. But if anyone can do it…”

John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) returns as Captain Jack Harkness, joined by Eve Myles (Broadchurch, Victoria) as Gwen Cooper, Gareth David-Lloyd (Sherlock Holmes) as Ianto Jones, Burn Gorman (Game of Thrones, The Dark Night Rises) as Owen Harper, and Naoko Mori (Absolutely Fabulous, Spice World) as Toshiko Sato. Also featuring in this adventure is Arthur Darvill (Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who, Broadchurch) as the vicious George Layton.

James Goss, producer: “It’s finally happened – we’ve got all five of Torchwood back together! We couldn’t have done it without their incredible enthusiasm and patience, with them coming to us straight off planes, trains and film sets. They’re all tremendous, and tremendous fun to have in studio.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
