Coming Soon: Torchwood: Outbreak

There’s a city under siege, a virus on the loose and there’s only one team fit to tackle a threat of this magnitude. That’s right the holy trinity of John Barrowman, Eva Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd are back in Torchwood: Outbreak – a full-cast box-set released this November 2016 from Big Finish.

Based on the Doctor Who spin-off series created by Russell T Davies, Torchwood: Outbreak is a three-part mini-series which sees Cardiff come under attack from a deadly virus.

Featuring Captain Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones and Gwen Cooper this new adventure has been written by Guy Adams, Emma Reeves and AK Benedict, taking place before the events of Torchwood: Children of Earth.


The full synopsis reads:

“First they know you, then you love, then you kill…”

A medical trial’s gone terribly wrong, and one of the test subjects is loose on the streets of Cardiff. Within hours a virus is raging out of control and the bodies start piling up.

The Government scrambles to control the outbreak, but isn’t too keen on anyone finding out the dark history of the virus. Captain Jack Harkness has encountered the infection before and knows that something alien is hiding inside it.

With the city sealed off and murderous mobs raging through the streets, Torchwood has to save something even more important than the human race.

Producer James Goss said:

“This is pretty much what everyone has wanted from day one. Torchwood’s holy trinity reunited in a full-cast box-set. Released as part of our celebrations of Torchwood’s 10th Anniversary, it sees the Institute at their very best and their very worst. We’re so very grateful to John, Gareth and Eve for somehow finding the time in their impossible schedules to save the Earth once again.” 

Supporting the survivors of Torchwood Three are original series stars Kai Owen as Rhys Williams and Tom Price as PC Andy Davidson; who will both find themselves fighting for their lives on the streets of Cardiff. Further cast members will be announced soon. The set has been directed by Scott Handcock.

Torchwood: Outbreak is available to pre-order today for just £20 on both CD and to download. The four-disc box-set will also include an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary, with CD orders also containing a complimentary digital copy, available immediately upon the set’s release.
