On Saturday 11th July, Eve and Kai will be completing a series of challenges in Snowdonia, including hiking up and down Mount Snowdon, zip-wiring across the mountain range, and doing activities at Tree Top Adventure!

Dewi is a young three year-old boy who was diagnosed with diplegia spasticity cerebral palsy – this makes it very hard for Dewi to walk, and makes him tired easily. There is an operation that will help Dewi, called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), but unfortunately, the NHS in Wales are only funding 8 children a year to have this operation, meaning that Dewi and his family have to raise the money themselves.
Eve and Kai are both determined to help Dewi get the £60,000 he needs for his operation – and you can help by donating at Dewi’s ‘Just Giving’ page, and also show your support by tweeting a seflie, just like Eve’s above using the hastag #HelpDewi!
Six audio productions are being written and created as part of a licensing deal with BBC Worldwide, and the new series will focus on different members of the Torchwood team, exploring the impact that a mysterious event has on them. The first audio production will be based around Captain Jack Harkness, and is titled The Conspiracy. This audio production will be released in September 2015 – the other five productions will be released monthly starting in January 2016.
On the topic of Torchwood returning in an audio format, Russell T Davies said the following words:
Torchwood has been to the Moon, and America, and the Himalayas, but now I think it’s finally coming home, to the brilliance of Big Finish.
Both fans and producers are excited about this new project, and also the possibility it holds of us getting a series five! It’s real guys, Torchwood is back!
