Big Finish’s Torchwood Monthly Range Returns in 2018

Following Aliens Among Us, Series 5 of Torchwood from audio company, Big Finish, the monthly range of Torchwood is back – and includes a script written by Ianto Jones himself, Gareth David-Lloyd!

It begins in March 2018 with The Death of Captain Jack and the return of James Masters as Captain John Hart. Producer, James Goss teases:

“If you’ve ever wondered what Torchwood would be like with Captain John at the helm, wonder no more. Nothing from the world of Torchwood emerges unspoiled – and that includes Queen Victoria, and Ianto’s dress sense!”

Here’s the synopsis:

Captain Jack is finally dying, and it’s time for his oldest friend to visit his deathbed. King John has come to tell him a story. The story of the life he should have had.

It’s the story of Alexander the Great, sinking ships, falling empires, robot dinosaurs, and alien invasions. It’s a story of love, royal weddings, murder, mass murder, genocide, and very tight trousers.

It’s the story of the life of Captain John and it’s the story of Torchwood. Be careful what you wish for.

Afterwards, we have David-Lloyd’s The Last Beacon, in which Ianto joins Owen Harper (Burn Gorman) in trying to save the world from an alien battlefleet. While camping.

Gareth says:

“I’ve had great fun doing it. Especially being able to put my own take on the actual words Ianto says, rather than how he says them. I’ve loved the material, and the subject matter of those scripts I enjoy as well because they’re all topics set close to my heart.”

Following this, it’s Guy Adams’ We Always Get Out Alive and James Goss’ Goodbye Piccadilly. Then we have an adventure yet to be announced, and, in August 2018, Murray Melvin is back as Billis Manger for Goss’ Deadbeat Escape.
