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

May’s release in the Torchwood – Monthly Range series, titled Disco, is the final instalment in a trilogy of full-cast audio dramas written by Gareth David-Lloyd, who also stars as Torchwood’s loyal assistant Ianto Jones. 

The three stories – which started with March’s Tube Strike and continued with April’s Missing Molly – each focus on an important point in Ianto’s life. 

Disco could be the most personal story for Ianto yet, as it centres on his fraught relationship with his father. This family struggle has long cast a shadow over Ianto’s character, but never been directly addressed until now. 

Rhys ap Trefor guest stars as the dad in question, “Disco” Jones. The episode also features Sara McGaughey as Newport barmaid Dezzy and Gareth John Bale as Ginge, Disco Jones’s nemesis. 

Torchwood: Disco is now available to own as a collector’s edition CD (+ download for just £10.99) or as a digital download only (for just £8.99), exclusively here

It’s 1987 and “Disco” Jones is still dancing. Life and soul, bab, life and soul. Wednesdays is darts at The Merry Miller, Thursdays – shove ha’penny at The Boilermakers, Fridays played by ear, and Saturdays it’s the Disco at Cinderella’s. 

So who is Tom and why does he want to build a fence with him? 


Writer and actor Gareth David-Lloyd said: “Disco has been a long time coming. Ianto’s dad has been this nameless entity so far who seems to have been quite a negative force in Ianto’s life. So I thought it was about time that we made him a three-dimensional character and really looked at who he was and the reasons Ianto is so affected by him. 

“Ianto creates an opportunity in Disco to find out who his dad was before he knew him. He is described by old friends as the life and soul of the party. That takes Ianto by surprise as he only knew him as quite a tragic figure. Ianto’s interest is piqued and he wants to meet this version of his dad that people have such fond memories of.” 

Director Lisa Bowerman said: “Disco is an extraordinary script because Gareth has managed to combine what is essentially a time travelling story with the most authentic, emotional and domestic context. It has a huge arc and a huge depth to it. It’s a brilliant piece of audio drama.” 

Praise for Torchwood: Missing Molly

“David-Lloyd has quickly established himself as one of Big Finish’s most consistently strong writers, and his ability to delve into such weighty emotions is incredibly impressive.” 
Doctor Who Reviews 

“This is a stunning script that demands a stunning cast and director. It has them.”
