John Barrowman in the Radio Times
The Torchwood radio dramas are:
*Â The Dead Line by Phil Ford – a series of mysterious phone calls lead Captain Jack into danger.
* The Golden Age by James Goss, set in India.
* Asylum is penned by Anita Sullivan and sees Torchwood investigate the story of a teenage runaway.
It has been long-expected that the dramas would air before Children of Earth – so expect them next week.
â€œIâ€™m in two minds about radio plays,â€ says Barrowman. â€œI can listen to the Torchwood radio plays, but I have a hard time listening to other radio dramas. Thatâ€™s why, when they asked me to do them, I was a bit like, Hmmm. But the success of Lost Souls was amazing and it opened my eyes to this media thatâ€™s always been out there, but which Torchwood hadnâ€™t really tapped into.â€
â€œIâ€™ve just finished my concert tour and one thing I said every night on stage, when I would talk about being Captain Jack, was, â€˜I will never tire of hearing a kid in a supermarket saying, â€œI love you, Captain Jackâ€.â€™ I will never tire of that.â€
Meanwhile, look out for changes to the Radio Times Torchwood minisite over the coming weeks.
