In The Shadows
The Torchwood team are caught up in the deadly activities of a mysterious cab driver in this exclusive audio adventure, read by Eve Myles.
When 24-year-old Steven Ballard is found dead, the police quickly realise that this is no ordinary case — for his body is that of a man in his seventies. They call in Torchwood to investigate, and after another corpse is found, it becomes clear that something terrible is happening.
Someone is sending victims to a dark dimension, to be punished by the thing they fear most. Who is the shadowy taxi driver preying on his passengers? What significance do boxes of matches play in this mystery? And can Jack ever escape from his own personal Hell…?
- In The Shadows was the third release of the BBC Torchwood audio stories. It was also the last audio stories to feature Owen Harper and Toshiko Sato.
- Gwen mentions lasagne while on the phone to Rhys.
- Most of the story takes place before the wedding of Gwen and Rhys. However, the story begins with an introduction by Gwen that is said to have been recorded after the deaths of Tosh and Owen. Gwen also mentions the events of The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End and Lost Souls. Although not explained in detail, it appears that Gwen is trying to use an alien artefact to send a message to Owen and Tosh in the afterlife.
- The Daleks, Abaddon and The Doctor (Jack’s “hero” who abandoned him) are referred to.
