Former BBC Doctor Who website master James Goss has contributed to the new run of Torchwood books set for release in October – and Risk Assessment certainly has an interesting premise…
â€˜Are you trying to tell me, Captain Harkness, that the entire staff of Torchwood Cardiff now consists of yourself, a woman in trousers and a tea boy?â€™
Agnes Havisham is awake, and Jack is worried (and not a little afraid). The Torchwood Assessor is roused from her deep sleep in only the worst of times â€“ itâ€™s happened just four times in the last 100 years. Can the situation really be so bad?
Someone, somewhere, is fighting a war, and they’re losing badly. The coffins of the dead are coming through the Rift. With thousands of alien bodies floating in the Bristol Channel, it’s down to Torchwood to round them all up before a lethal plague breaks out.
And now they’ll have to do it by the book. The 1901 edition.
Featuring the Torchwood team of Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones, Risk Assessment is released alongside The Undertaker’s Gift and Consequences on October 1st 2009.
