It’s the end of the world… and it's starting in Cardiff! Huge changes are happening in the second release of Torchwood series 6: God Among Us. Read on to find out who’s joining the team, and what awaits Torchwood this February.
The story details, cover art and trailer of the sixth series release Torchwood: God Among Us 2 are out now. Norton Folgate rejoins Torchwood, Andy and Yvonne get very close indeed, and the world is truly going to hell…
Norton Folgate’s come from the 1950s to warn Torchwood it’s the end of the world. He might have a point – there’s an alien god wandering the city, and a sinister force manipulating events behind the scenes. Where are all the homeless people going? And why doesn’t it stop raining?
1. Flight 405 by Lou Morgan
Flight 405 went missing over 60 years ago, but tonight the plane finally lands. Norton Folgate is a Torchwood agent from the 1950s and he swears Flight 405 contains the secret to the end of the world, but can Torchwood trust him?
2. Hostile Environment by Ash Darby
An app's been launched that allows you to tag the homeless. People think they're doing a good thing and helping out. It does seem a remarkable success. After all, since it’s launched, there are a lot less homeless people on the streets – so it must be doing some good, mustn’t it?
3. Another Man’s Shoes by Tim Foley
Yvonne wakes up in Andy's body – and both have difficult days ahead of them. Meanwhile, Norton’s making himself very much at home in Tyler’s body, much to Tyler’s alarm, and Ng is worried she knows what’s going on. Someone's playing a terrible trick on Torchwood. But who will win?
4. Eye of the Storm by David Llewellyn
An alien power station is sending out waves of lethal energy, people are turning to stone and the water levels are rising. As Torchwood set out on a desperate mission, god takes tea with someone who has been playing a very long game. Has the time come for Norton Folgate to save the world?
