Big Finish Torchwood 19 The Death of Captain Jack

Available to order from

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.

      Do you really think he’ll die? Of course he won’t.
