After a series of violent and seemingly unrelated deaths, the solution to a riddle seems to point the finger of blame at Captain Jack. Can the Torchwood team uncover the truth, which lies hidden in the heart of the Welsh countryside, in time to save their leader?
I love Naoko Mori’s reading voice, but this one was hard to stay engaged with, when it came to the plot. It just droned on, at points. Didn’t make much sense until the end, which sometimes works when it comes to Torchwood, but not this time, due to that lack of engaging parts. Still, there were some enjoyable bits!
At first I was a bit sceptical because of the length, but Naoko Mori does such an excellent job presenting the story, that I was hooked right from the start. The story runs around 2 1/2 hours and you have to pay close attention to follow the storyline – so make sure you got the time needed. For quite a while you wonder why this case is Torchwood related at all, but it all becomes clear throughout the story. The characters are well drawn and Naoko does a great job giving each of them a voice so it’s easy to followe who’s speaking. And boy I did not expect a car chase would be such a thrill in audio format. Definitely the highlight of the episode. Jack is a bit on the backburner in this story, but all of the others have their moments to shine.
