Writer James Goss said: “I’m so pleased we’re doing a second Torchwood Soho boxset. We obviously had to find a way of bringing the acid-tongued boss of 1950s Torchwood back from the dead as we just couldn’t face doing it without Dervla Kirwan. So, we’ve reunited her with Tom Price, Sam Barnett and Joe Shire in a story that’s about alien invasions and town planning.

“There’s something wrong in the commuter town of Ashenden and the secret to it lies in Torchwood’s past. It’s a tribute to the alien paranoia movies of the period, but it’s also a celebration of how a bunch of unusual outsiders really can save the day.”

Of playing Lizbeth Hayhoe, Dervla Kirwan added: “She’s a fabulous character. I adore how rude she is. In real life I’m quite a shy person and I’d never say the kind of things she just comes out with without even a thought about the consequences.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever been resurrected and I’m loving it.”
