‘Torchwood’ Season 5 confirmed – and Russell T Davies is back!

Nearly six years since its fourth run, Torchwood is returning for a fifth season.

Big Finish exclusively announced details of Torchwood: Aliens Among Us at DWAS Capitol II convention at the weekend.

Featuring new characters co-created and overseen by Russell T Davies, Season 5 follows the events of 2011’s Miracle Day and sees Captain Jack, Gwen and Rhys reunited in Cardiff.

The audio adventures’ cast includes John Barrowman, Kai Owen, Tom Price, Paul Clayton, Alexandria Riley, Sam Béart, Jonny Green and Eve Myles.

The official synopsis reads: “In this series, Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood in Cardiff, home of the original Torchwood Three. But it’s in a very different Cardiff. Something terrible’s happened to the city. With every day getting darker, will Torchwood need to adopt a whole new approach?”

Producer James Goss revealed: “This is an ambitious series for Big Finish – an entire season of Torchwood! There are some great scripts by some new writers, but there are also some familiar old faces – of course Rhys and Andy are in it, but there’ll be a few other surprises, including an appearance by someone who just has to be, has to be dead…”
