Torchwood pick up the pieces and move on. After all, there’s a whole new set of alien threats to deal with. But when a God comes to Cardiff, the world goes to Hell…
Eye of the Storm
An alien power station is sending out waves of lethal energy, people are turning to stone and the water levels are rising. As Torchwood set out on a desperate mission, God takes tea with someone who has been playing a very long game.
Has the time come for Norton Folgate to save the world?
This last episode of part 2 of God Among Us is so good! There is a lot of suspense and action that ends in an outstanding and mind-blowing conclusion but still leaves room for good character moments.
I particularly enjoyed (especially in contrast to a lot of Aliens Among Us/God Among Us) the characters being competent and working together (even if some of them have their own agendas).
The characters feel real and are the best version of themselves. Jack is a good leader and strategist. Mr Colchester is grumpy and perceptive. Ng is no-nonsense. Norton seems to be having fun but is playing with more than he can handle. Tyler is trying to be better. Yvonne is highly connected and competent but blinded by “duty”.
I may be grading this on a curve for this range. But maybe not because it was really gripping and I really really enjoyed listening to it.
Exceptional episode. This story was really just a beautiful example of how well this team can work together. I really am warming to NG, and find the ongoing storyline very intriguing.
