The Twilight Streets
Synopsis

It’s the start of a Cardiff autumn – the days are getting shorter, the dark evenings settling in. There’s a part of Cardiff that no one goes to much. No crime, no murders, just they stay away. A collection of old rundown houses and gloomy streets. Something’s not quite right there, something is off-kilter. Except now, the Council are renovating the area. And a new company have been employed to do this. And look: they’re going to organise street parties to show off the gentrified area. Clown and face-painters for the kids, street magicians for the adults. None of this is Torchwood’s problem. Except that Tosh recognises the man sponsoring the street parties when she’s passing one day: Bilis Manger!
