Yvonne and Ianto are back. London is in deadly danger. Tracy-Ann Oberman and Gareth David-Lloyd are required.
Torchwood One: Machines, the second Torchwood One box set, is coming out in July next year. With guest star Jane Asher and a script by Gareth David-Lloyd, Torchwood has never been in more peril with the return of arch-villain WOTAN.
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.
Three new challenges await the staff of Torchwood One.
The Law Machines by Matt Fitton
The Mayor of London is launching her bold new law and order initiative. The capital will be kept safe from crime, from fear, from terrorists.

Blind Summit by Gareth David-Lloyd
Ianto Jones has just moved to London. He's broke, has no friends, no future. One day he loses the one thing he's been holding on to, and suddenly people around him are dying.
Could a mysterious woman really offer him salvation?
9 to 5 by Tim Foley
It's Monday morning. Stacey loves Mondays. Stacey loves every day. Stacey lives to work. She's a temp and she loves it.
Only there's a man in the coffee queue who has a terrible warning for her. Stacey is going to die today.
“What do you want to talk about first, the script or the cast?” producer James Goss tells us about both. “Barnaby Edwards has matched Tracy-Ann Oberman and Gareth David-Lloyd with the greats of stage and screen. Jane Asher (from everything!) plays Yvonne's nemesis; Adjoa Andoh (Doctor Who, Thunderbirds, Invictus) plays the Mayor of London; and we even have James Wilby (Howard's End, Poldark, Titanic) playing a biochemist.
“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's 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!”
Torchwood One: Machines will be released in July 2018, and available for pre-order for £20 on CD or £15 on download, going up in price on general release to £25 on CD and £20 on download.
