Torchwood is coming back but is the team ready for its greatest threat to date? They will be fighting an alien god in the fiery start to series 6 of Torchwood: God Among Us.
Torchwood, the cult television show created by Russell T Davies, ran from 2006 to 2011 as a spin-off from Doctor Who, with Big Finish continuing their adventures on audio.
In Series 5: Aliens Among Us, Torchwood returned to Cardiff and dealt with an alien occupation, terrorists, and the surprising resurrection of Yvonne Hartman. This year they face an alien god.
God Among Us kicks off a few days after the Aliens Among Us finale, but not everyone has made it out alive...
John Barrowman returns as Captain Jack Harkness, joined by Tracy-Ann Oberman as Yvonne Hartman, Paul Clayton as Mr Colchester, Alexandria Riley as Ng, Samantha Béart as Oor, Jonny Green as Tyler Steele and Tom Price as Sergeant Andy Davison. Leading the Sorvix is Rachel Atkins returning as Ro-Jedda.
Producer of the series and Episode One writer, James Goss, tells us more about the return of the Torchwood team:
"We had such a great reaction to Series 5, it’s been a delight getting the cast back together to do more. Now things are established the stories are more standalone, seeing Torchwood face some tough challenges – a plague of sleep, a city that goes blind, organising a funeral, and then there's an alien god to deal with!”
John Barrowman shared in the studio his thoughts on Torchwood and Series 6:
“They are really great stories in Series 6, they really move the narrative forward. I find all over the world, from Puerto Rico to Paris, from London to Pensacola, Florida to South America, there are huge Torchwood fans and the audience is always growing.”
Executive producer, Jason Haigh-Ellery, adds:
“Torchwood quickly became one of my favourite audio series from Big Finish, the work James and director Scott Handcock have done with the wonderful guidance of Russell T Davies has made the adventures of Captain Jack and his team compulsive listening. I can’t wait for series six to be released!”
