A special feature-length story celebrating 10 years of Torchwood!“Welcome, visitor. The Torchwood Archive provides a complete history of our Institute from its distant beginnings to the present day. When we founded our great enterprise in the year of our Lord 1879, we decreed that there should be a record of this achievement, stored at the very furthest limits of the British Empire. By visiting you are spreading that legacy, perhaps out through the skies. For now, I shall bid you a good day and welcome you to the Torchwood Archive. Do, please look around.”The Torchwood Archive is a forgotten asteroid in the centre of a great war. Jeremiah is its first visitor in many centuries. He’s come to learn something very important. And the ghosts of Torchwood are waiting for him.

    What a great celebration of 10 years of Torchwood!

    This story is an amazing tapestry of Torchwood characters and plot lines. It is quite impressive how the story manages to interlace all the different existing elements into one plot while still managing to introduce twists.

    It is, as a result, quite dense and probably requires a few listens to get it all. I sometimes think it should have been extended to a 3-hour audio to add some breathing room. But the pacing is really good as it is so probably not…

    Special mention to Rowena Cooper, who is always absolutely delightful as Queen Victoria.

    So far I haven’t been able to really enjoy this one. I tried a couple of times and it just doesn’t click. The idea behind it is really interesting and it’s great to hear so many loose ends with The Commity are picked up and put into the right order. My problem is that it’s mainly a narration of events that makes it hard for me to keep my mind from wandering after a while. I will definitely give it a few more tries, maybe I will appreciate at some point in the future.
