Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood. But it’s in a very different Cardiff. Something terrible has happened to the city. With every day getting darker, will Torchwood need to adopt a whole new approach?
It may no longer be on our screens, but Torchwood continues to go from strength to strength with Big Finish announcing the third part of the Torchwood audio series Aliens Among Us, set after the events of Miracle Day.
This four-disc set features the return of Captain Jack and Yvonne Hartman, with John Barrowman and Tracy-Ann Oberman reprising their roles. Hartman was last seen presiding over Torchwood in the Tenth Doctor 2006 finale, Army of Ghosts/Doomsday.
The synopsis for each episode reads:
Poker Face by Tim Foley
Torchwood are in trouble. Terrorist attacks are rocking the city. Control of the police has been ceded to Cardiff’s alien masters. And it looks like it’s all been arranged by Captain Jack Harkness. Worse, there’s a dead woman in the cells who says that Torchwood will be hers by dawn.

“I know what you’ve done. I know what you’ll do.” The phrase starts appearing everywhere around Cardiff. On posters. On the internet. It’s just a prank, isn’t it? Only a wave of vigilante crime spreads through the city. People are taking revenge. Suddenly everyone knows what you’ve done. And they know what you’ll do.
Escape Room by Helen Goldwyn
Gwen Cooper, Rhys Williams, and the Colchester-Prices go to try out an escape room. They’ve heard a lot about them. Especially this one. People keep going into the game and not coming out. But Torchwood will be fine. After all – partners can trust each other. Can’t they?
Herald of the Dawn by James Goss
It all starts normally enough. A car park full of ramblers is incinerated by a thunderbolt. But the next day it’s clear there’s something very wrong. Something’s changed. Something’s coming. It’s the end of the world. And that’s what Torchwood are best at.
Torchwood: Aliens Among Us Part 3 is available to pre-order from Big Finish for release in February on CD and download for £28 and £25 respectively.
