In possibly the most emotional Torchwood release to date, Owen Harper and PC Andy Davidson explore the darkest case in Torchwood history. Torchwood: The Hope is out today.
Megwyn Jones is one of the most hated women in Britain. She used to run a home for troubled children in an isolated part of Snowdonia called The Hope. For a long time there were rumours about what was happening there, and then one day it was realised that the children had gone missing. Ever since, Megwyn’s kept her peace. Is she innocent? Is she guilty? Where are the bodies?
The years have been long and hard on Megwyn and on the families of the children. But now Megwyn’s dying, and she’s agreed to go back to The Hope, to reveal the horrible secret she’s kept all these years.
Director Scott Handcock told us more about having Welsh acting royalty in this release: “Torchwood is such an unashamedly Welsh series, and Dame Siân Phillips is a national icon and acting powerhouse. It’s been a dream of mine for a long while to bring the two together and it was just a matter of waiting for the perfect role to come along… The Hope offered just that role.
“It’s a chilling script, and Siân’s performance as Megwyn Jones is perfectly judged. Everything in this story happens because of her, and she’s a fantastic foil for the rest of our cast as a result, with everyone bringing their A-game.”

Sebastian Vaughan is dead. Toshiko Sato’s been given permission to bring his body home to give him the send-off he deserves. How will Torchwood cope without him?
