Torchwood: The Dead Line
Starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones, the CD release of Torchwood: The Dead Line runs to 1 hour on 1 CD and is available now.
Written specially for BBC Radio by Phil Ford, The Dead Line is another terrifying adventure surrounded by mystery. Along with Asylum and Golden Age, The Dead Line was first broadcast in early July on BBC Radio 4.
When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients that have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood move in to investigate. They find that the trances were triggered by phone calls, which were made from a number that hadnâ€™t been active for over 30 years. Determined to find out whoâ€™s been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number â€“ itâ€™s a dead line. Until it calls Jack back, he answers â€“ and falls into a deep trance…
With the help of one of Jackâ€™s old girlfriends, eminent neuroscientist Stella Courtney, the team have to race against time to find the source of the â€˜infectionâ€™ and save the patients…
