It’s less than 2 hours before the Gallifrey One Tickets go on sale. I took a vacation day today so I could be home to get my tickets. Now that’s a dedicated WHO fan. 🙂
So if you’re planning on going to Gally be there at 10am Pacific/1 pm Eastern because the tickets sold out in 15 minutes last year.
Now onto the news….
Big Finish Productions, have announced they have secured the rights to Torchwood, and that they will produce six new stories starring Captain Jack and the team, this Autumn.
The licensing deal with BBC Worldwide will allow the team to recreate the series with members of the television cast, and the range will be launched in September with the return of John Barrowman as the irrepressible Captain Jack Harkness.
Conceived as a spin-off from Doctor Who, Torchwood was created by Russell T Davies and made its début on television in 2006. The top secret organisation Torchwood saved Cardiff (and often the world) from alien menaces and terrible forces, trying to keep the city safe from the inter-dimensional rift that ran through it. In charge of Torchwood was Captain Jack, a man who has been called: “A companion to the Doctor, a rogue Time Agent, an immortal, a dangerous con-man, and very good at parties.” Captain Jack can’t be exterminated or trusted, and there’s just no stopping him.
The new series of audio dramas will each focus on different members of the Torchwood team, exploring the impact that a mysterious event has on them. Starting off the range will be John Barrowman, who stars in The Conspiracy, a deadly thriller by David Llewellyn.
