This special six-part time-travelling Torchwood release is now available as a collector’s edition CD or download, exclusively from Big Finish productions.
In 2018, the Torchwood monthly adventure, Goodbye Piccadilly, united popular audio character Norton Folgate (Samuel Barnett) and his friend Sergeant Andy Davidson (Tom Price) as they were dragged back in time to Soho in the 1950s.
Now we turn back the clock again to find Norton accompanied by Andy in Torchwood Soho – Parasite, a full-cast audio drama, which features the twosome hunting down alien artefacts stolen by Nazis, escaping from a time-travelling pub, and battling zombies in Margate.
We will also meet Norton’s boss (played by Dervla Kirwan) and the hapless leader of Torchwood Soho (David Troughton), who both share a terrible secret. And we will finally discover why Torchwood hid the Skylon at the Festival of Britain.
Enter the world of 1950s Torchwood!
Gangsters are vanishing from the streets of Soho, there’s a deadly Nazi secret on the loose, and something’s moving in the smog. Norton Folgate should be sorting this out, but the Torchwood agent is in disgrace. Who’s going to save London this time?
The incredible supporting cast also includes Joe Shire (as Gideon Lyme), Dervla Kerwan (as Lizbeth Hayhoe), David Troughton (as Rigsby) and Franchi Webb (as Belle Epoch).
Actor Tom Price said: “The listeners really like what Big Finish is doing with Torchwood, which means we can rock up and do more. It’s amazing that the world of Torchwood has been built on good foundations and we can keep adding to it.”
Director Scott Handcock added: “One of the biggest highlights was getting Dervla Kirwan in to play Lizbeth Heyhoe. She fell in love with the script and said it’s absolutely the kind of part she’d never get seen for on screen – and we just had an absolute blast.”
Torchwood Soho – Parasite is now available to own as a collector’s edition CD box set at £19.99 or on download from the Big Finish website at £16.99.
Torchwood fans can save money by ordering Torchwood Soho – Parasite as a bundle with Torchwood One – Latter Days from just £33.
