July Books 31) Hidden, by Stephen Savile

The first of the non-printed series of Torchwood audio books, by Stephen Savile and read by Naoko "Tosh" Mori, set before the end of Series 1, so with a full five-member team. I am getting into these, I must say, having enjoyed The Sin Eaters earlier in the month: Naoko Mori has a quiet voice, but is intense when she needs to be, and also is good at doing the others' accents without sounding like she is taking the piss. The story is a decent variation from the Torchwood standard, with seventeenth-century alchemy and modern genetic research combining to make a respectably sfnal plot, with also plenty of good character moments (Jack and Gwen, ironically enough, getting fewest of these). Anyway, brightened up a few days' commute; I shall look out for more of these (esp as my reservoir of unheard Big Finish plays is running very dry).
