Asylum is one of the three recent Torchwood radio plays which are now available to purchase on CD from BBC Audiobooks.
The Torchwood Team are expecting a routine case, until they discover the suspect carrying an unknown weapon.
When PC Andy Davidson arrests a young girl for shoplifting, he thinks itâ€™s going to be a routine case. Until he sees that she is carrying a gun. The girl is soaking wet, covered in mud, and the weapon is like nothing heâ€™s ever seen before. He knows that this is a case for Torchwood…
The team discovers that the girl is called Freda, but can find out nothing else. Yet when she speaks, itâ€™s a strange mix of English and Icelandic, but with a Cardiff accent.
While Jack and Ianto check out the girlâ€™s weapon and her blood sample at the Hub, Gwen and PC Andy take Freda to a safe house. But when Jack calls with the results â€“ and Freda goes on the run â€“ PC Andy finds his world turning upside down.
Asylum is penned by Anita Sullivan and aired on BBC Radio 4 earlier in the year in the week leading up to broadcast of Children of Earth.
Although the RRP is Â£9.78 you can purchase Asylum for just Â£5.86 from Amazon!
