For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The Torchwood Soho Team Ascend!
Return to 1950s Soho for the end of the world in a brand-new box set of full-cast audio adventures, due for release in February 2024 from Big Finish Productions.
Two-time Tony nominee Samuel Barnett is back as Torchwood One’s Norton Folgate in a six-part political thriller written by James Goss. Also returning is Tom Price (as Sergeant Andy), Dervla Kirwan (as Lizbeth Hayhoe), Joe Shire (as Gideon Lyme) and Class star Greg Austin (as the devious government agent, Armitage).
Is the end of the world really nigh? A number of groups believe so – and what’s odder, they’re all vanishing.
Have they really gone to heaven, or is something far worse happening? It’s Torchwood. Obviously something far worse is happening.
Torchwood Soho: Ascension is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (+ download for just £22.99) or a digital download only (for just £18.99), exclusively here.
Producer James Goss said: “We always have such a fun time in the studio on these. Getting to spend time with Sam, Tom and Joe is always a treat – there’s a real company feel.
“They’re sometimes not easy scripts to say – a 1950s-themed sci-fi tongue-twisters – but when you’ve got Dervla Kirwan attacking the lines with such vigour and joy, it’s a real delight. It’s the story of how one tiny miscommunication goes global with truly terrible consequences.”
Praise for Torchwood Soho: The Unbegotten:
“Blisteringly funny, gloriously icky, resolutely kind and Torchwood from hat to shoes. Great work, everyone. 10/10”
– Sci-Fi Bulletin
“The six-episode duration gives every element room to breathe, creating a layered portrait of the community Torchwood is trying to save.”
– Blogtor Who
“As always, it’s a delight to hear the main cast back together, with the catty-but-loving interplay between Samuel Barnett’s Norton Folgate and Dervla Kirwan’s Lizbeth Hayhoe being a particular highlight and putting a smile on my face from the get go.”
All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.
Please note that Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
