Big Finish picks up the events after Miracle Day with Torchwood: Aliens Among Us…

Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood. But it’s in a very different Cardiff. Something terrible’s happened to the city. With every day getting darker, will Torchwood need to adopt a whole new approach?

Changes Everything

Tyler Steele has washed up in Cardiff looking for a fresh start. A disgraced journalist, he’s looking into the Red Doors movement – are they really behind the terrorist attacks on immigrants? Who is stirring up the racism and hatred in the city, and what does outsourcing contractor 3Sol have to do with it? Tyler finds out that Torchwood – a secret organisation that everyone thought long gone – is back in business. Tyler realises that this is the second chance he’s been looking for, and he’ll do anything to be a part of it.

  1. Estelle

    As much as I’m happy to have a continuation of the Torchwood story, there are a few jarring things in this first episode of the fifth series.
    For example, Jack refusing to give someone a second chance is so anathema to the character that I feel there should be heavy character work to justify it.

    I also felt that the plot was driving the dialogues in ways that felt weird and out of character such as Gwen referring to Jack as “her boss” because, for some reason, they were building up Jack’s entrance as this big thing?

    The underlying plot line (aliens among us) and its thinly-veiled metaphor to real issues are interesting though and I’m looking forward to what they do with it.

    I love this whole season. I think it’s absolutely brilliant, even when it isn’t (because nothing is absolutely perfect). Consider the five stars for the season as a whole.
    (Side note: still want to know why the “42” in “wingman42”)

    This story is a great reintroduction to Torchwood, and sets up the new characters and storylines very well. Whilst I have a few issues with this story, it overall does serve as a good start to an excellent series.
