To celebrate Torchwood’s tenth anniversary in October, Big Finish have announced an extra-special new release Torchwood – The Torchwood Archive; a two-disc special release coming in October from Big Finish, celebrating ten years of the massively popular Doctor Who spin-off by bringing together a host of familiar faces in a brand new adventure from writer and producer James Goss:
“Welcome, visitor. The Torchwood Archive provides a complete history of our Institute from its distant beginnings to the present day. When we founded our great enterprise in the year of our Lord 1879, we decreed that there should be a record of this achievement, stored at the ver
y furthest limits of the British Empire. By visiting you are spreading that legacy, perhaps out through the skies. For now, I shall bid you a good day and welcome you to the Torchwood Archive. Do, please look around.”
The Torchwood Archive is a forgotten asteroid in the centre of a great war. Jeremiah is its first visitor in many centuries. He’s come to learn something very important. And the ghosts of Torchwood are waiting for him.”
As writer James Goss explains:
“The Torchwood Archive is a celebration of 10 years of Torchwood. It features scenes with characters from the beginning of Torchwood to what may be its very end – from Queen Victoria through to Jeremiah Bash Henderson. It’s an excuse to gather together literally everyone we could get our hands on. It’s an unusual release – part anthology, part giddy epic, and mostly just a shameless excuse to hopefully make the fans ridiculously happy.”
The cast includes John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness), Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones), Naoko Mori (Toshiko Sato), Indira Varma (Suzie Costello), Kai Owen (Rhys Williams), Tom Price (Andy Davidson), Tracy-Ann Oberman (Yvonne Hartman), Richie Campbell (Jeremiah Bash Henderson), Rowena Cooper (Queen Victoria), Julian Lewis Jones (Alex Hopkins), Samuel Barnett(Norton Folgate), David Warner (The Committee), Emma Reeves (Miss Trent),Krystian Godlewski (Maxim Ivanov), Guy Adams (Archie), Geoffrey Breton(Bartender), Lisa Bowerman (Miss Mitford), Laura Doddington (Delilah), Aaron Neil(Mandrake), Kerry Gooderson (Little Girl), Ryan Sampson (Ivan Putin), Damian Lynch (Kieran Frost) and Paul Clayton (Mr Colchester)
