Eve Myles is to reprise her role as Gwen Cooper in a new full-cast audio adventure, Torchwood: Among Us.
Since 2017, Big Finish have been carrying the Torchwood baton in their productions, having already created two Torchwood audio adventures, and the alien hunters are back with new releases in 2023.
The official synopsis for the series describes how “Torchwood are on the run. As the world puts itself back together, Torchwood are there to pick up the pieces. And they find something nasty hiding in them.”
The first of the Among Us adventures will see Eve Myles reunited with Kai Owen in a story called Misty Eyes which will see Rhys and Gwen living in apparent peace in Iceland together. However, as you might expect, that peace and tranquillity isn’t set to last!
Eve Myles said: “Gwen is a beacon. She’s that person keeping an eye on everything. She can go to the ends of the Earth but she’ll always be Torchwood. Gwen is in my DNA and I love her DNA.”
Producer and Script Editor James Goss added: “It’s wonderful that Eve Myles found the time to reunite with Kai Owen to kick off Torchwood: Among Us. We’ve been sat on this coup for some time now, and it’s great that people are finally going to find out what brings Gwen Cooper back into the world of Torchwood.”
Torchwood began its life as a TV show created by Russell T Davies, a spin-off of Doctor Who from his first time as showrunner on the BBC science fiction series. The show ran for four seasons from 2006 to 2011. A popular part of the Doctor Who universe there have been calls for it to return for the last decade which have intensified since the Disney+ deal with the BBC that has led to speculation there could be more Doctor Who spin-offs planned.
The Torchwood: Among Us series will be released as three box sets in May, June and July of 2023 as CDs and as digital downloads. Something to keep you busy while you wait for the 60th anniversary specials in November and the season 14 opener with Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson in the TARDIS.
