    This may be a Captain Jack Harkness box-set but Jackie Tyler is the true MVP of this episode. Camille Coduri is once again amazing and charming as Jackie and both her big monologues are heartfelt and great character work!
    Though I would argue mainly a supporting character in this story in terms of character work if not plotwise, Jack Harkness is here at his best (and John Barrowman’s best): compassionate, playful and very much wanting to right what’s wrong.
    To round up the performances, Paul Clayton’s is one of the highlights of this episode to me.

    The plot is less interesting in itself than in how it evolves throughout the audio. There is a natural progression that helps create different atmospheres in this closed setting.

    Also, do listen to the interviews for this episode, they’re really fun!

    I LOVE this episode. If you’ve listened to season 5/6, you’re in for a treat with some of the other characters! Also I love Jackie Tyler–she’s so genuine and funny in this audio. And Jack’s an absolute treat, as always. I adore him.
    Plus, there’s so many good one-liners…

    I think Jackie and Jack are a really nice Team-up. That said I wasn’t the biggest fan of Wednesday For Beginners since the story focused too much on Jackie in my opinion and I couldn’t really connect with it. This was done so much better with Crush! It’s a murder mystery and it created a very nice atmosphere with great scenes between the two of them. In additon Paul Clayton, Samantha Beard and Jonny Green from the new TW team voiced other characters so it was almsot a Torchwood reunion.
