Torchwood One – we defend the British Empire. We keep everyone safe. For your own good.
Something's happened. Something's twisted its way into Torchwood One. Something old. Something which should have been forgotten, wiped, abandoned. Something which has been waiting. Something which knows how the world should be ruled, how people should be used.
When humanity's threatened, Yvonne Hartman is required.
Torchwood One: Machines is out now.

Producer James Goss tells us about returning to Canary Wharf: “Barnaby Edwards has matched Tracy-Ann Oberman and Gareth David-Lloyd with the greats of stage and screen.

“The scripts are just as ambitious. We've the debut of Gareth David-Lloyd with a heartbreaking, hilarious story about Ianto's first(ish) meeting with Yvonne; Tim Foley has written a cruel satire about work; and Matt Fitton has resurrected WOTAN.
“Fans of Doctor Who TV episode The War Machines will be delighted to know that the villainous super-computer is back, every bit as menacing as ever. And this time he has wi-fi!”
