For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The Ood are back in the second of a loose Torchwood audio drama trilogy, released today from Big Finish Productions.
Nothing goes to waste in the Empire.
Nothing ever dies.
Not even secrets.
When the body of a dead Ood (Silas Carson) is found, it’s up to Zachary Cross Flane, survivor of the Krop Tor incident, to discover the secrets of the Empire’s recycling planet.
Joining him are Amanda Shodeko (Timeslip, Class) as synth sidekick Chloe, Belinda Stewart-Wilson (The Inbetweeners, Primeval) as Lady Drogba, and Paul Panting (Octonauts, Chuggington) as union leader, Mr Brakow.
Who would murder an Ood? In the 43rd Century, all the Earth Empire's waste goes to the recycling world of Paraglas IV. But has something else been sent there? Something worth killing for?
The Torchwood Archive sends Zachary Cross Flane to investigate, and he uncovers a terrible secret. The Empire has a use for everyone, even after death.
Writer James Goss said: “How do you investigate the murder of an Ood? Especially when it seems that the murderer was another Ood? Zachary Cross Flane (Shaun Parkes) reluctantly investigates and comes up against a labour relations dispute that might actually be a vast conspiracy spanning the human empire. Or it could all be in his head.”
Praise for Torchwood: Odyssey:
“A brilliant opening to Torchwood‘s ‘Ood trilogy’, and gives the remaining two instalments a lot to live up to.”
“It’s always exciting to hear new, fresh styles and perspectives, and [writer Patrick] O’Connor has certainly started out strong.”
“A tremendously engrossing and resonant affair throughout.”
