We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Settle in for a frightening festive adventure this December, as Torchwood’s Ianto Jones comes face to face with an ancient and alarming Welsh folk myth.
“Listen. Mari Lwyd. White as moonlight. Rattle-bagged and broken backed. Steed of winter who the pale men carry.
“Who are those that squire you? Slow and ceaseless, yard by yard, house by house, and door by door.”
This full cast audio drama finds Gareth David Lloyd’s Ianto Jones in search of a simple, peaceful Christmas away from saving the world – until he finds himself in the company of a mysterious creature that wants to join the feast.
The Mari Lwyd is a fine Welsh Christmas Tradition – the skeleton of a horse roams the streets, begging to be let in for food and warmth. Once she knocks, only the most cunning can send her away.
Ianto has come to a remote village for a quiet Christmas. But the Mari Lwyd has come knocking. And she’s real.
Producer and script editor James Goss said: “It's Torchwood's second Christmas Ghost Story! Lauren and Stewart have written a folk horror based around the Welsh tradition of the Mari Lwyd and it's spooky, enchanting, funny and nasty. Just like the best Torchwood. Can Ianto enjoy a quiet Christmas alone? Spoiler: No.”
Please note that Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
