For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.

Mari Christmas! First-time Big Finish writers Lauren Mooney and Stewart Pringle bring a traditional festive folk tale from South Wales to Torchwood’s door.  

Gareth David-Lloyd stars in a spooky story of myth and mystery. Can Ianto Jones enjoy a quiet Christmas alone? Or will he fall foul of the riddle of the Mari Lwyd?  

Torchwood: The Grey Mare is now available to own as a collector’s edition CD at £10.99 or on download at £8.99, exclusively HERE.

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. 


Actor Gareth David-Lloyd said: “I'm a massive horror fan. I love tension, and suspense, and fear. And when horror and folklore combine, I get very excited, so I fell in love with this script straight away.” 

Co-writer Lauren Mooney told Doctor Who Magazine: “The Mari Lwyd is an amazing tradition, and it’s not ostensibly frightening in the delivery of it; it’s a community pastime. But there’s always something interesting about ‘How far would you have to nudge something familiar before it began to feel malign?’” 

Co-writer Stewart Pringle added: “It didn’t feel like you would have to nudge the Mari Lwyd very far! Ianto Jones tries to hoard Christmas like a miser and gets the kind of payback that misers always get when they try to hoard things at Christmas!” 

Torchwood: The Grey Mare is now available to own as a collector’s edition CD at £10.99 or on download from the Big Finish website at £8.99. 

Please note that Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners. 

Listeners of the monthly Big Finish Torchwood range can save money by pre-ordering a bundle of stories. A six-release bundle is £60 on CD or £50 on download – or save even more money by ordering all twelve of the latest Torchwood releases together at £110 on CD or £94 on download.
