Sebastian Vaughan is the brightest, newest recruit to Torchwood. He’s come from a very good family, an excellent school, and with a degree from the finest College. He’s the kind of person bred for Torchwood.

Sebastian Vaughan is exactly the person Torchwood needs. He’s charming, he’s smart, and he’s good in a fight. He’s taken Torchwood’s other new recruit under his wing. With his help, Toshiko Sato will make something of herself and fit in at Torchwood.

Sebastian Vaughan is dead. Toshiko Sato’s been given permission to bring his body home to give him the send-off he deserves. How will Torchwood cope without him?

    It’s a nice audio. The first half felt a bit slow to me. I think it’s probably because Sebastian is an ass, and not a lovable one like, say, Norton (that’s purely subjective of course). I also didn’t feel like we learned anything new about Tosh in the first half.

    However, the second half was stronger in my opinion. The halfway mark is more or less when the plot thickens and when most of the character work starts really working for me.

    Bonus points for the description of the Captain Jack Harkness episode of series 1 in the interviews! lol

    Not the best, not something I’d willing relisten to. Sebastian is just the absolute worst and has no redeeming factors and his mother is the same. The story is a little all over the place and the only good thing is Tosh but even then we really don’t get much character backstory or development so its not really grand.
