  1. Changes Everything by James Goss

Tyler Steele has washed up in Cardiff looking for a fresh start. A disgraced journalist, he’s looking into the Red Doors movement – are they really behind the terrorist attacks on immigrants? Who is stirring up the racism and hatred in the city, and what does outsourcing contractor 3Sol have to do with it?

  1. Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy by James Goss

Has Cardiff really been invaded by aliens? Tyler thinks he’s found a lead – the daughter of the mysterious Ro-Jedda is getting married and has booked a private party. If Torchwood can infiltrate it, there’s a chance they’ll end up closer to the truth. Free bar, canapes, and the chance to find out what’s really going on. What could possibly go wrong?

  1. Orr by Juno Dawson

Vincent Parry is the most successful property developer in Cardiff. A while ago he made an agreement with the mysterious Ro-Jedda, and it is an arrangement he has come to bitterly regret. Something has to be done – but it’s going to cost him everything he loves. With time running out for Cardiff, Torchwood encounter an alien who knows them only too well.

  1. Superiority Complex by A K Benedict

Poverty and homelessness are on the rise in Cardiff. The streets are full of the desperate and the dispossessed. So, of course, it’s the right time to open a 7-star luxury, all-inclusive hotel. And, naturally, the hotel is for aliens only. As the humans stand outside the gates and look hungrily in, there’s one thing that makes them smile. Someone is murdering the guests.

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us Part 1 is a 4 CD set starring: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Kai Owen, and many more and is available to pre-order on CD and download now for £28 and £25 respectively.

    I guess they’re ignoring the end of Series 4 then? I wanted to see where they’d go with another immortal human besides Jack.

    • Liam

      Excited for this, they’re Torchwood output had been one of the best things they are doing at the moment.

      • Philip

        Absolutely agree! Torchwood has found a really good home at Big Finish.

      I presume it’s purely because they couldn’t secure the American actors. Or maybe they are ignoring it!
