Big Finish Torchwood 36 Dissected

Available to order from www.bigfinish.com

Freema Agyeman returns to the Doctor Who universe

Martha Jones is back! Freema Agyeman reprises her role in a brand new audio adventure with Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper in Torchwood: Dissected.

Tenth Doctor companion, Martha Jones, returns to the world of Torchwood in February next year. Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Sense 8, Line of Duty) starred in series 3 of New Doctor Who and its spin-off show, Torchwood, before going on to a huge career.

Big Finish Productions is delighted that Freema is reprising her role in this new Torchwood story, which explores what Martha did after her adventures with the Doctor.

Employed by UNIT, Martha is reunited with former Torchwood colleague Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) – over a dead body…

Gwen Cooper turns up on Martha Jones’s doorstep with a dead body in tow. She needs to ask one final favour of her. And to find out why they stopped being friends.

A lot’s happened to Torchwood since Martha left. A lot’s happened to Martha since she left Torchwood. And there’s something very odd about the dead body Gwen’s brought with her. Tonight she’s going to be getting more answers than she bargained for.

“Aw mate, the nostalgia has been quite overwhelming,” says Freema on returning to the character of Martha Jones. “It really is like stepping into comfortable old shoes. It feels like about five minutes ago and yet so much time has passed. That’s the wonderful thing about the Whoniverse – you never feel on the outside of it. It’s great to be back.”

“I first met Freema back in 2006 working on Doctor Who Confidential,” says director Scott Handcock. “I watched Martha Jones arrive and grow, and it’s a pleasure to welcome her back to the world of Torchwood. It’s something we’ve been chatting about for years, and to finally make it happen with the amazing Eve Myles (who adores her and vice versa) is a real treat!”

Writer Tim Foley told us more about uniting two of science fiction’s most courageous female leads: “Martha Jones is back! And I’ve locked her in a room with Gwen! It’s such a delight to pit these two against each other. This is quite an experimental story – you’ll be listening to an autopsy in real time, which was such a fun challenge. Luckily for me Eve and Freema spar off each other marvellously, stuck in a lab with nothing but a corpse for company…”

Torchwood: Dissected starring Freema Agyeman and Eve Myles, will be released in February 2020 priced at £7.99 on download or £9.99 on CD. Don’t forget all CD purchases unlock a download option via the Big Finish app and the Big Finish website.

    I know big finish do a lot of spin offs but I would like to see one with Martha and Mickey as freelancers, or alternatively see her turn up in modern torchwood like she did in the TV show for a couple of episodes

      Dude Martha was one of the greatest companions. Period.

      You’ll find this is far from being “the last thing” anyone wanted.

      Martha is hands down the best companion of New Who. I’m thrilled to see her back! Far more interesting than Rose ever was. And she was left with a great ending of walking away from the Doctor but still fighting alien threats. Rose’s sotry became messy in the end. S4 ruined her exit for me.
      Top 3 would be:-
      1. Martha
      2. Donna
      3. Graham

      I’d wager they meant Law and Order.

    Love love love Martha, even her voice is gold. Such a great actress, hope we get more from her. She’s the only new who companion on these audios who’s natural voice is literally the voice of her character so it sounds like the Martha we all know and love rather than Rose and Donna, who I love dearly but who’s accents are more refined and posher than they were in the show so it feels less genuine

    Please say that Freema’s return will mean a potential 10th Doctor Adventures series 4 with him and Martha…

      Fingers crossed! There’s much potential with Freema at BFP, Martha’s time with the Doctor, her time with UNIT, Torchwood, going freelance with Mickey, ALSO she could reprise her cousin Adeola from Torchwood One

      Probably! It’s a case of scheduling I think I heard David’s schedule is hectic so maybe it won’t be for a while but here’s hoping their schedules align!
