Burn! 'Eggs! The Full Monty!

Since the last update, Big Finish have released a full statement confirming Burn Gorman's return to Torchwood!


"WE'VE GOT BURN!!! It's so exciting," says producer James Goss. "We've been trying to get Burn Gorman since we started. We've been hunting him across the globe, from Man In The High Castle to And Then There Were None, and we kept getting so close - and then he vanished into the depths of Hungary to make a film for months - but as soon as the project wrapped he was raring to go"

The full statement can be read by clicking here!

Meanwhile the Radio Times spotting a cheeky reference to Torchwood hidden within episode 2 of Sherlock's fourth series (click here to read the story).

And! There's a trailer for Kai Owen's UK tour of The Full Monty. Of course you want to see it!

A Week Of Big Finishes

It's been a busy week for Torchwood updates - all courtesy of Big Finish Productions.


Firstly, The Torchwood Archive was announced; a release to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the series launch in October. It reunites the original series cast (bar Burn Gorman), ties into the current Committee storyline, and tells tales from across the Torchwood timeline. It's a perfect celebration of the show - so thanks Big Finish, we promise to pre-order it now!

Meanwhile they'll be another series of 6 single disc releases coming in 2017 - the first of which features the return of Rhys' Mum! Once more the series will jump across Torchwood's history, and we'll visit the Torchwood of 1970's L.A.!

There's two prequel boxsets coming...

The first is Torchwood: Before The Fall, which takes place at Torchwood London's Canary Wharf arm. It tells the story of when Ianto Jones worked for Yvonne Hartman, and is out in January.

Then, The Lives of Captain Jack! It tells the story of Jack immediately following Doctor Who's The Parting Of The Ways as he lies trapped in the year 200,101 - recently returned to life, on a post-Dalek Earth! It then skips ahead to his life in the 20th and 21st Centuries, and will guest star Jackie Tyler and Midshipman Alonso Frame!

Titan Comic's Torchwood comic continues its monthly releases. Issue 2 is coming 28th September.
