For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The first full-cast audio adventure in an exciting Torchwood romance trilogy, The Last Love Song of Suzie Costello, is released today, on Valentine's Day, from Big Finish Productions.
Indira Varma (Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Capture, Carnival Row) makes a grand return as the untrustworthy Suzie Costello in a dynamic tale that finds her lovestruck at the bottom of the ocean...
Torchwood: The Last Love Song of Suzie Costello is now available to own as a collector’s edition 1-disc CD + download (for just £10.99) or as a digital download only (for just £8.99), exclusively here.
An island's appeared in the North Atlantic Ocean. Suzie Costello comes to investigate and finds a crashed spaceship on the seabed.
Inside the spaceship is a mystery. And also something Suzie has never dreamed of.
Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
Writer Rafaella Marcus, making her Big Finish debut with this release, said: “There was so much that I enjoyed about writing this script. I love writing an impossible love story. I find that deeply compelling.
“Suzie contains some incredibly interesting contradictions. The word ‘ruthless’ comes to mind and that’s very much where she’s at when we meet her in the show. I was very interested in how she got to that point and what happened to her that exploited her other extreme which is a very painful vulnerability.
“I wanted to write a love story for her because I was interested in who the other person would need to be and what the circumstances would need to be for this incredibly secretive and closed-off person to even consider opening themselves up.”
Joining Indira Varma in the talented cast is James Backway (The King's Man) as the dashing pilot Anwir, alongside Danielle Kassaraté (stage actor and co-founder of the UK’s first all-black, all-female Shakespeare Company, Mawa Theatre Company) as Magda and Orion.
The remaining titles in the Torchwood romance trilogy, The Thirst Trap (due for release in March 2023) and Launch Date (due for release in April 2023), are each available to pre-order for just £10.99 (collector’s edition CD + download) or £8.99 (download only).
Praise for the last adventure featuring Suzie Costello, Torchwood: Sync:
“Like all good Torchwood episodes the events of a night in Cardiff make for wonderful stories.”
– Blogtor Who
“It's gleefully tongue-in-cheek, provides some insight in the characters and gives good comfort food for the fans. A quality chapter in the ever-evolving "drama" this is Torchwood.”
– Bleeding Cool
“The script is brilliant, the main cast is on fire and the direction is fabulous. The whole piece is a joy to behold. Sync is not to be missed!”
