Torchwood: Aliens Among Us 1

Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper are back to confront a new powerful threat emerging through the streets of Cardiff in the first batch of this new Torchwood adventure by Big Finish Productions, which is known to be the true sequel to the Torchwood saga set moments after the Miracle Day incident.

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us 1

To the words of Big Finish Productions, Aliens Among Us is officially known as the fifth series of the Torchwood saga and it picks up where Miracle Day left off in an amusing way to keep the spirit of Torchwood alive and kicking. No one knows why but we're fine by that.

The Miracle is no more. Captain Jack and Gwen faced The Miracle head on and triumphed. Now, in the aftermath, the two revived Torchwood from the ground up at an undisclosed location as they face the terrible consequences of their actions. Tyler Steele, a disgraced journalist, arrives in Cardiff for his new beginnings while investigating the so-called Red Doors movement, who allegedly claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks on immigrants, stirring up racism and hate in this Welsh metropolis. Delving deeper into this new kind of conspiracy, Tyler finds out that the secret organization known as Torchwood is back online and he will do everything to join the ranks and solve this new kind of threat that plunges Cardiff into a "sea of chaos."

In addition to returning cast of characters such as John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, and Tom Price as Sgt. Andy Davidson, Aliens Among Us introduces listeners and fans alike new characters joining forces with Captain Jack and Gwen in their newest mission such as ex-military Mr. Colchester (played by Paul Clayton), journalist Tyler Steele (played by Jonathan Green), and a valuable new recruit named Ng (played by Alexandria Riley).

The first part features four missions you will be experiencing in this new Torchwood saga; from Tyler's arrival in Cardiff, the Ro-Jedda conspiracy, a mysterious agreement between a contractor and an alien race in question, and the last one is very relatable in today's times where the lines between the rich and poor have been blurred out of the question. Needless to say, the people behind this new chapter of Torchwood have drawn inspirations from today's world affairs ranging from the Trump presidency, the Brexit, the ongoing terrorist attacks, the migrant crisis, and so on while blending with the classic Torchwood chemistry to gap the line between fact and fiction and by mixing factual world affairs with science-fiction stuff, Aliens Among Us gives listeners a serious nightmare fuel with a dose of Torchwood thrills to balance it out to make it more enjoyable for devotees of the hit Doctor Who spinoff program.

Don't miss part two of Aliens Among Us coming this October 2017 and part three this February 2018 and they can be ordered as a bundle starting at 75 GBP on CD or 60 GBP on download. Best to pick the download one because you can be the first people to listen to this true sequel of the hit Doctor Who spinoff.
