Torchwood: Ex Machina review

Ianto Jones is the last member of the team left standing, in an eerily empty and abandoned Cardiff, in the latest monthly Torchwood audio release from Big Finish. Even more alarming than the unexplained absence of his colleagues is the arrival at his front door of Abigail, a young woman who seems to know all … >

Torchwood: Dinner and a Show review

It’s an eventful night at the opera for Ianto and Toshiko in the latest monthly Torchwood audio release from Big Finish. Penned by Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto), Dinner and a Show is an entertaining comedy caper, that mixes some sci-fi absurdities and moments of genuine “mild peril” with a diverting and well-crafted character-led drama. The dynamic … >

Torchwood: The Office Of Never Was review

From the roster of the Torchwood central cast, doubtless many would agree that Ianto Jones had the most to gain from the show’s audio revival. Presented as the ever-reliable background boy, albeit with a tortured past and a cyber-girlfriend stashed in the basement, his opportunities to shine on screen were limited at best. The audio … >
