Torchwood - The Lost Files

Torchwood is on British TV again this evening, our transatlantic friends having already seen the new episode; but we've also had three new Torchwood audios over the last few days, broadcast on BBC Radio Four and downloadable from the Beeb's site, featuring John Barrowman as Jack, Eve Myles as Gwen and Gareth David Lloyd as Ianto (which gives you an idea of the setting in continuity).

The first thing to say about them is that, unlike in the three Torchwood audio plays broadcast two years ago, John Barrowman appears to have woken up and discovered how to act without the visuals. All three of the regulars are on form here, and most of the guest cast are too.

And all three plays deal in slightly different ways with cheating death, which I suspect ties in to the theme of the new television Torchwood as well. Looking forward to it.
