For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Ianto Jones takes listeners on a private tour through Torchwood’s top-secret repository in a brand-new audio adventure, released today by Big Finish Productions.
Torchwood: Restricted Items Archive Entries 031-049, written by Big Finish newcomer Maddie Wilson, is available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD (+ download for just £10.99) or digital download only (for just £8.99), exclusively here.
The Restricted Items Archive is where all the items too dangerous for Torchwood are stored. Ianto Jones carefully catalogues each and every one. And he always works down there alone. Only, something’s not quite right. There’s a secret in the Restricted Items Archive that won’t be ignored any longer.
Writer Maddie Wilson said: “Ianto has layers of personality and at the top level, he has a very smooth and unruffled exterior which is all about professionalism and getting the job done without being noticed. Beneath that he has a really dry sense of humour. He’s really intelligent and focused with specialist knowledge that you might not expect. At the centre of it all, he cares very deeply but he doesn’t spell it out for you. As a writer, it’s really fun to play with all of those layers.”
Star Gareth David-Lloyd added: “Ianto is being very industrious. He’s doing the boring job that nobody wants to do and he's at a point where he feels left out by the team. He’s reacting to things he’s handling and it’s like the restricted items become the other characters.”
Praise for the last Ianto-centric adventure, Torchwood: The Grey Mare:
“It’s another strong character-centric piece for Gareth David-Lloyd.”

"This is Torchwood, especially these small cast plays, at its best. Clever and subtle, thematically brawny but light on its feet. A highlight of a consistently strong, consistently inventive range. 9/10”
“The performances from the cast are as superb as ever.”
