Both Ghost Train and Department X are written by James Goss, author of many Torchwood and Doctor Who novels including the award-winning Dead Air.
Taking place in the Torchwood continuity before Children of Earth, Ghost Train and Department X stories feature Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones, as played by John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd in the hit series from BBC Television.
Taking the microphone for narration on both titles is Kai Owen, better known as Gwen’s long-suffering fiancÃ© Rhys.
Ghost Train sees Rhys investigating his very own mystery, for once. OK, it starts off being about missing fridges. But it leads to a midnight train pulling into an abandoned platform at Cardiff Station. What is the mysterious cargo that Rhys is unloading? Where’s it going? And what can be behind it?
Meanwhile, Department X finds the Torchwood team going undercover in Cardiff department store G. R. Owen, the last of Cardiff’s old department stores. Times are hard and the ancient firm has gone into administration. But who are the Administrators? What goes on behind the shutters at night? And why are customers disappearing? Jack is determined to find out, before the store closes forever.
