Big Finish are recording another Gwen Cooper based audio drama titled More Than This, and is to be released in February 2016!
Gwen Cooper has triumphed against impossible odds before, but now she’s finally met her match: Roger Pugh, Planning Officer for Cardiff City Council.
Mr Pugh doesn’t believe the world needs Torchwood. Gwen sets out to prove him wrong. For Mr Pugh, it’s a day that’ll change his life. If he can survive it.
The drama can be pre-ordered here, and can be purchased as a hardcopy or download. This is the last release in the collection, but not to fear – Big Finish will be making a second series of Torchwood audio dramas next year!

News has just been released that Eve will be starring in the new ITV drama, Victoria! Eve, Peter Firth (Spooks: The Greater Good) and Rufus Sewell (The Man In The High Castle) are the latest cast announcements for the new drama, and will be working alongside Jenna Coleman – who is playing the lead role of Queen Victoria.
Victoria is being hailed as an “ambitious landmark drama” which will follow the early life of Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman), from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Price Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years, and was the UK’s longest serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II earlier this year.
The only information we have at the moment is that Eve will be playing the role of Victoria’s senior dresser, Mrs Jenkins, and that the new series will be released in 2016, starting with the first 90 minute episode and then continuing with a further seven, 60 minute episodes.
Here are a list of press releases so far:
- Peter Firth, Eve Myles & Rufus Sewell Join ITV’s ‘Victoria’ – TV Wise
- Jenna Coleman leaves Doctor Who behind in first look at ITV’s Victoria – Digital Spy
- FIRST LOOK: Jenna Coleman transforms into a young Queen Victoria in new still for upcoming ITV period drama – Daily Mail

On Wednesday 7th October, BBC Radio 4 aired another drama titled ‘Frank & The Bear’. In the radio drama written by Emily Steel, Eve plays the role of Amy – here is the synopsis:
Baby Frank is just hours old when his breathing becomes difficult and he’s whisked from his mother’s arms. The situation is critical. Hours turn into days as the doctors try to make him better. Whilst they wait Frank’s parents tell make-believe stories of their baby son and his pal Bear, as they desperately long for a happy ending.
The drama can be listened to on BBC iPlayer (expiring in 27 days), and we are currently trying to get this up on YouTube for those who don’t live in the UK. Enjoy!
This year, BBC Radio 4 are devoting three hours of air-time on Halloween to playing radio adaptations of horror classics!
The evening will kick off at 10pm with Nigel Kneale’s classic 1972 teleplay, ‘The Stone Tape’ starring Romola Garai, Julian Barratt and Jane Asher. Afterwards, at 11pm Eve and Naoko Mori will be starring in Koji Suzuki’s ‘Ring’, adapted from the novel ‘Ringu’ published in 1991. The book has already been adapted into movies, manga and a TV series – and now it’s time for radio. The piece has been adapted by award-winning playwright Anita Sullivan and directed by James Robinson. According to The Guardian, videotapes and possessed televisions feature heavily in the piece – so fans are excited to see how these concepts have been adapted into radio.
Both of these new productions feature binaural recording techniques, where microphones placed either side of a dummy human head lend recordings a 3D effect when listened to on headphones. If you are feeling brave, there will be a binaural version onRadio 4’s website on the night.
