Torchwood Consequences by James Moran, Joseph Lidster, Andrew Cartmel, Sarah Pinborough and David LlewellynHere’s the blurb and the cover (click for hi-res version):

Saving the planet, watching over the Rift, preparing the human race for the twenty-first century… Torchwood has been keeping Cardiff safe since the late 1800s. Small teams of heroes, working 24/7, encountering and containing the alien, the bizarre and the inexplicable.

But Torchwood do not always see the effects of their actions. What links the Rules and Regulations for replacing a Torchwood leader to the destruction of a supermarket? How does a witness to an alien’s reprisals against Torchwood become caught up in a night of terror in a university library? And why should Gwen and Ianto’s actions at a local publisher’s affect Torchwood more than a century earlier?

For Torchwood, the past will always catch up with them. And sometimes the future will catch up with the past…

Consequences features the Torchwood team lineup of Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones.
