For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Norton Folgate joins Britain’s space race in a brand-new full-cast audio drama in the Torchwood monthly adventures, released today by Big Finish Productions.
In the 1950s, a history-making rocket launch ends in disaster and Professor Lynne Sharman (Safiyya Ingar) is to blame – according to her boss, the condescending Sir Christopher Grey (Russell Bentley).
A brilliant scientist detects an asteroid destroying any craft entering the Earth's orbit. Is it protecting the human race or imprisoning it?
Only one person believes her. That person is from Torchwood. Norton Folgate is taking Lynne Sharman on the journey of her life.
Please note that Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
Producer and script editor James Goss said: “Torchwood in space! Norton Folgate goes on the hunt for a strange object in Earth's orbit — is it keeping humanity imprisoned, or is it protecting us from other worlds? If you're a fan of Britain's attempts at the space race, then Lizbeth Myles has written the Torchwood for you.”
Actor Safiyya Ingar added: “I loved playing Lynne. I love a strong and determined professional who knows exactly what they’re doing, doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone and will do anything to prove they’re worthy of being there.”
Writer Lizbeth Myles agreed: “Lynne Sharman is named after the first British astronaut, Helen Sharman, who isn’t well-known enough. I wanted her to be very ambitious which is often perceived very negatively — it’s her greatest strength and weakness.”
Torchwood: The Black Knight is now available to own for just £10.99 (collector’s edition CD + download) or £8.99 (download only), exclusively from the Big Finish website.
Praise for Torchwood: Sonny:
“It’s a hugely atmospheric piece of audio drama that will draw you in, makes you think, and leaves you pondering the society in which we live.”
“Sonny […] continues the trend of the Torchwood range setting an extremely high bar not only for Big Finish, but also for audio drama in general. More like this, please!”
“A sophisticated science fiction character piece from five minutes into the future.”
