Torchwood - 19 The Death of Captain Jack
Captain Jack is finally dying, and it's time for his oldest friend to visit his deathbed. King John has come to tell him a story. The story of the life he should have had. It's the story of Alexander the Great, sinking ships, falling empires, robot dinosaurs, and alien invasions. It's a story of love, royal weddings, murder, mass murder, genocide, and very tight trousers. It's the story of the life of Captain John and it's the story of Torchwood. Be careful what you wish for. The huge and long - running public interest in new Torchwood adventures resulted in a server melt-down when its return on audio was announced by star John Barrowman on his Sunday night radio slot. Across the range, John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Kai Owen and Gareth David -Lloyd have reprised the characters who starred in four years of hit Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, screened around the world - Gareth David-Lloyd played Ianto Jones in the BBC series, a character so popular with fans that when he was killed off, a shrine was created in Cardiff that is still there to this day! This marks the first time James Marsters has reprised his popular Captain Hart character, though to fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer he's still best known as the charismatic baddy vampire Spike! Big Finish's Torchwood range also includes - so far - three specials: Torchwood - Outbreak, The Torchwood Archive and Torchwood One - Before the Fall, and in late 2017 a new audio range carried on the series from where it left off on TV. NOTE: Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
