Three audio play episodes running 45 minutes will air in Radio 4’s Afternoon Play slot in June, reports Torchwood.tv, with the full cast plays apparently set after the previous audio play Lost Souls and before the upcoming Children of Earth should premier days after the plays.
It’s an interesting continuation of the format established with Lost Souls, and could even be the start of Torchwood’s enhanced lifespan beyond the bubble of Cardiff sci-fi success – reunion plays in 20 years time and that sort of thing…
Details of the three plays follow:
