The stories are ‘Here Today’ by Joseph Lidster, ‘Destination: Wedding’ by James Goss and ‘The Witching Tree’ by Lizzie Hopley. You can check out the previously released details here.

Interestingly, with a full cast list now available, we’ve spotted a surprising crossover with another Doctor Who spin-off; Johnny Green is listed as playing the character of Tyler Steele, a journalist and Torchwood associate from the Aliens/God Among Us audio continuation of the show. Odds on he’ll feature in ‘Destination: Wedding’, as the writer is Torchwood producer James Goss.

Rani Takes on the World: Beyond Bannerman Road is available to pre-order on Collector’s Edition CD and download now, releasing in April 2023. Volume 2 is also up for pre-order too, both separately and as part of a bundle.
