15. Corpse Day
'... Both gents are spellbinding in this and I think we should see them team up again. Great counter points to each other. There is also a great supporting cast and collection of additional characters that flesh out this story and give it a nice sinister tone. I think director Scott Handcock must have had a lot of fun with this one. 9/10 ' Indie Mac User
'... James Goss is really doing a good job of giving us fans service whilst not detracting from the story ' Gallifrey Archive
'A plot that starts as a buddy cop knockabout suddenly warps into a visceral horror story. A heady mixture of audio-gore and psychological dread makes this a really memorable story. ' Blogtor Who
'Corpse Day is brutal, haunting, horrific and shot through with pitch-black humour and throughout its duration the “terrible” twosome are confronted by the kind of insanity that never takes no for an answer. Burn Gorman and Tom Price are fantastic as the odd couple who take centre stage ' Mass Movement
Glynn Lewis is just putting up a spice rack when there’s a knock at the door. A knock that will bring a brutal end to his perfect family.
PC Andy is very excited. It’s Corpse Day – the day when the local constabulary get help on dead cases from Torchwood. This year, he’s volunteered to act as liaison, and he knows he’s going to have a brilliant time.
For Dr Owen Harper, today’s just like any other. There’ll be bloodshed, screaming and murder. At the end of it all, he doesn’t care. After all, life’s just for the living, and he’s long dead.
