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 a new arrival prove to be the ally Torchwood needs?
Gwen Cooper, Rhys Williams, and the Colchester-Prices go to try out an escape room. They’ve heard a lot about them. Especially this one. People keep going into the game and not coming out. But Torchwood will be fine. After all – partners can trust each other. Can’t they?
This is what Big Finish does best: a mystery and/or an adventure as a basis for character exploration.
The MVP of this episode is definitely Colin for me. All characters have great moments, there are great dynamics in all pairings of characters and all performances are exceptional but Colin especially shines.
The whole concept of the story is also really fun and well-executed and makes this audio even more compelling.
Fantastic. I love how it adds to the individual characters, as well as relationships, both romantic and workplace and otherwise. Really great bottle episode. (Can it be a bottle episode in an audio?)
Escape Room is amazing! I love the idea of having it take place in an escape room and then having them split up worked perfectly. Having Ng/Gwen and Colin and Mr. Colchester and Rhys together was such a good set up and the obstacles they had to face were really fun and it was interesting to listen to them figure everything out.
I already really loved Mr. Colchester and Colin but this cemented that for me! Escape Room is just really, really good!
I honestly cannot praise this story enough, I absolutely love this story and the characters.
