Titan Comics’ Torchwood series continues with a brand-new character arch for Captain Jack and the Torchwood team – with the addition of one very special new character.
Torchwood: The Culling, written by Captain Jack himself John Barrowman and his sister and writing partner Carole Barrowman, will feature a new character – Sladen a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen better known to Doctor Who fans as companion Sarah Jane Smith.
John Barrowman said:
“We are very excited to bring this new character Sladen to the world of Torchwood. You all know both Carole and I were great fans of the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith and what a better way to pay homage to her and create a character with her last name. Elisabeth Sladen was the mother of our ship on Doctor Who and now Sladen lives in Torchwood.”

Now, the team must help the planet recover, and continue to look for answers amidst the wreckage. But there’s something – someone! –emerging from Station Zero, where the final battle took place… something that will change Jack and Gwen’s lives forever!
