Dinner and a Show
Naoko Mori (Toshiko Sato), Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones)
It’s February 14th and Owen is a no-show for Toshiko’s not-Valentine’s-Valentine’s Night at the opera.
Worse, when Ianto turns up he has bad news for Toshiko, for Cardiff and for fans of classical music – the opera is full of aliens. The doors are bolted, there’s no way out, and this could be the final curtain
Cardiff’s most clandestine team of elite operatives will return in a new monthly series of Big Finish full-cast audio dramas, beginning in April 2020, and available to pre-order individually or in bundles from today!
The continuing series, originally created for television by Russell T Davies, has been produced on audio by Big Finish Productions, in association with BBC Studios, since 2015. Led by the irrepressible Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), former Time Agent and companion to The Doctor, these all-new adventures find members of the Torchwood team caught up in a series of perilous events.
Next month’s release, Dissected, features Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) co-starring in their first Torchwood story together since 2008.
Then, after a brief respite from alien incursions in March, the Torchwood team will reassemble for more adventures in a full set of twelve regular monthly releases from April. The first four titles and writers have now been released, as follows:
Tropical Beach Sounds and Other Relaxing Seascapes Vol 4 by Tim Foley
Iceberg by Grace Knight
Dinner and a Show by Gareth David-Lloyd
Save Our Souls by Scott Handcock
Already confirmed to return are Owen Harper (Burn Gorman), Toshiko Sato (Naoko Mori), Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) and Queen Victoria herself (played by Rowena Cooper). And there will be plenty more surprises along the way.
Producer of Big Finish’s Torchwood range, James Goss, said: “If you’ve never listened to a Torchwood audio adventure before, now’s a great time. The next set of stories are unpredictable, messy, sometimes funny, and sometimes horrible. In these four announced titles alone, an alien opera arrives in Cardiff, Queen Victoria battles ghosts from the future, a Mars Base turns up just off the A474, and a malevolent entity takes over the voice of… well, you’ll just have to wait and see…”
Please note that Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
All confirmed Torchwood monthly releases are available for individual pre-order as collector’s edition CDs at £10.99 or on download from the Big Finish website at £8.99.
Subscribers to the Big Finish Torchwood range can save money by pre-ordering a bundle of forthcoming stories. A six-release bundle is £60 on CD or £50 on download – or save even more money by ordering all twelve Torchwood releases together at £110 on CD or £94 on download.
