    The one thing that could make this even better would be broadcast on BBC radio like BF’s original Eighth Doctor series (and previous Torchwood audio dramas by the BBC)

    I would prefer them to come in single releases and be released weekly or monthly.

    Why are they so expensive?

      Big Finish are a small company with a relatively small paying audience who still have to pay actors, sound designers and the like. It’s a credit to their brilliant work that actors of such fame and regard want to take part in their productions at all, given that they probably pay less money than such actors are used to.

      I meant compared to the other doctor who and torchwood box sets

      The previous Torchwood box sets were 3 parts, this one is 4.
      Also I imagine that this set is more ambitious than most, we already have eight main cast members announced without any mention of who will be playing minor guest roles in the individual episodes.

      Doom Coalition and similar box sets are £23 to pre order

    I want this to be fresh, so no references to things that have happened elsewhere in the other releases. No Norton Folgate, no Comittee…just something new. Super excited though!!

      Don’t think this is tying into the other torchwood big finish stuff, this is set long after most of that following after miracle day, so may tie into that as it had a bit of a cliffhanger

      In which case, Rex needs to be in this.

    Hope we get some explanations to the unresolved cliffhangers, and I’m hoping one of the doctors will finally show up in these audiobooks

    in response to many on here, such as The Dalek Whovian, or LastOfTheSonics. Torchwood IS on audio now. Accept that. It will never come back to TV especially given it would have to either rewrite and decanonise all big finish or work around it. Big Finish has made Torchwood so much better in many aspects. I for one, adore it on BF and hope it never leaves.

      It doesn’t have to leave BF to be on TV again

      Yes it’s not coming back to TV anytime soon, but they wouldn’t not do that because of the audios, but this followup likely indicates they have no plans

      It’s Ng played by Alexandria Riley by the looks of it. Also it looks nothing like Bill.

    Well I suppose a fifth series in some form is better than no series. Although I am still holding out for a fifth one.

    This is properly the closest thing we will get to Series 5 (Unless Chibnall plans to revive Torchwood) but any continuation is awesome

      Don’t think Chibnall has the rights to revive Torchwood. Moffat said the same thing before – that he has no control over it either, its simply down to the fact if both RTD and BBC say yes to a fifth series.

      Ah that explains a lot, I’m sure John Borrowman will persuade the BBC or RTD one day.

      RTD was involved in the creation of this (It says in the press release), so he’s not blocking it, so I assume its the BBC based on your comments. Saying that, I wouldn’t know, cause I’m not a fan of Torchwood and MA stuff in general.
