6. More Than This
'Without question, this has been the strongest incarnation of Torchwood.' Tin Dog Podcast
'This is an extraordinary piece of writing, acting, and direction – an occasion where all the constituent parts come together to create something greater, where they really do become More Than This. 10/10.' Planet Mondas
'The soundscaping (Neil Gardner) is fantastic (listen through decent speakers / headphones) and this story ticks every box I can think of.' Red Rocket Rising
'... amazing... a masterclass for writing incredibly powerful and moving monologues.' GallifreyArchive
'More Than This is a funny, tragic, heart-breaking tale... [In] Roger Pugh... Guy Adams has constructed a complicated, believable character... Richard Nichol’s portrayal... lends him an authenticity that gives the listener pause and a moment to thank whatever deity or higher power they have faith in that they don’t have to share his daily fate. He’s an odd foil for Gwen Cooper, brought back into extra-terrestrial slaying, Earth-saving action by the ever-excellent Eve Myles... Torchwood Three, it’s good to have you back…' Tim Mass Movement
'The best moments of the TV show generally came when the characters took a moment to ponder the somewhat unsettling menace of the universe, and this season finale has that in spades. It’s a magnificent way to bring this first season to an end... 9/10' Starburst
93% “Laying vital foundations for the future but not at the expense of strong storytelling, “More Than This” is essential listening for Torchwood fans, offering listeners a ‘back-to-basics’ approach that feels evocative of Season One” Pop Culture Bandit
Gwen Cooper has triumphed against impossible odds before, but now she's finally met her match: Roger Pugh, Planning Officer for Cardiff City Council.
Mr Pugh doesn't believe the world needs Torchwood. Gwen sets out to prove him wrong. For Mr Pugh, it's a day that'll change his life. If he can survive it.
