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!
