Big Finish announces second series of Torchwood audios

Big Finish has confirmed that a second series of Torchwood audio releases will be available from March 2016, just one month after Series 1's concluding instalment.

"Everyone involved's just had so much fun that we didn't want to stop," says producer James Goss, "And Big Finish said, 'It's okay, you don't have to'. We've already got the first script in and it's a delight."

The new series will continue the adventures of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and his team, with stories taking place at different points in Torchwood's history.

"It’s wonderful to be able to commit so soon to a second series of Torchwood," says Big Finish executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery"This is completely down to the immense support we have received from the fans of the series. We are delighted to be continuing the adventures of Captain Jack and his team!"

"I couldn’t really imagine that the response to our Torchwood series wouldn’t be positive," added co-executive producer Nicholas Briggs, "So I’m very pleased not to have been proved wrong. The series has so many dedicated followers and the audios have been written, directed and produced with such love for the source material. James Goss, as producer, has brought so much enthusiasm and joy to the project. I find myself hoping every day that I’ll receive another excited email from him."

"And we’re so grateful that the brilliant stars of Torchwood have come in to record and have been so bloomin’ good! Russell T Davies has been so supportive and full of encouragement too. Frankly, we had no choice but to get on with a second series as soon as possible."

Listeners can subscribe to the second series of six audios at Big Finish's website, at special prices which will be held until the end of the first month of release - after which prices go up by £5 on both CD and download formats.

Series 1 continues in October with Fall to Earth, starring Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, followed in November by Forgotten Lives with Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Kai Owen as Rhys Williams. Three further releases will follow at monthly intervals.
