Have they really gone to heaven, or is something far worse happening? It's Torchwood. Obviously something far worse is happening.

Producer James Goss said: "We always have such a fun time in the studio on these. Getting to spend time with Sam, Tom and Joe is always a treat - there's a real company feel.

"They're sometimes not easy scripts to say - a 1950s-themed sci-fi tongue-twisters - but when you've got Dervla Kirwan attacking the lines with such vigour and joy, it's a real delight. It's the story of how one tiny miscommunication goes global with truly terrible consequences."

Actor Tom Price said: "I really love doing all the different guises of Torchwood. With Torchwood Soho, I love working with Joe and Sam - they're brilliant actors, a lot of fun to bounce off, you can really trust them.

"Andy's definitely changed since we first saw him in the TV show, and not just his hairline - he's become more astute, he's got an inner Sherlock who comes out every now and again, and he's more passionate about doing the right thing."

Samuel Barnett added: "I don't think anyone quite makes me laugh like Tom does, which is tricky when you're in a studio trying to get work done! He's very on it, he&'s played Andy for years so he knows him inside out, but he always brings difference and nuance each time, and our relationship as actors has grown as our relationship as Folgate and Andy has grown, so I love coming back to do this with him.

"Ascension is a big mystery for Torchwood - essentially, they're led to believe that people are being beamed up to Heaven. Norton doesn't really believe in Heaven, he suspects that it's some sort of alien interference, and as ever it's very murky as to who's on the right and the wrong side. There's something in this script which is very much about human nature and feels very relevant for today."
