Torchwood Series 5 Is Finally Here!

Since 2011's Miracle Day, fans have been waiting with hot anticipation for the next series of Torchwood. For years, the show's creators have been brushing it off while John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness, has been keen to do another series.

But now we are finally getting the series we've been hoping for... sort of. The official fifth series will be in the form of a Big Finish audio range.
Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood in Cardiff, home of the original Torchwood Three. But it's in a very different Cardiff. Something terrible's happened to the city. With every day getting darker, will Torchwood need to adopt a whole new approach?
Overseen by original creator Russell T Davies, Aliens Among Us will pick up where Series 4. John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Kai Owen will reprise their original roles as Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, with Tom Price also back as PC Andy. There will also be a number of new characters, including Mr. Colchester (Paul Clayton), Tyler (Jonny Green), Ng (Alexandria Riley) and Orr (Sam BĂ©art). 

James Goss, producer, said of the new series: 
"This is an ambitious series for Big Finish - an entire season of Torchwood! There are some great scripts by some new writers, but there are also some familiar old faces - of course Rhys and Andy are in it, but there'll be a few other surprises, including an appearance by someone who just has to be, has to be dead..."
The first part of Series 5, Among Us will be released this August in three boxsets. The stories are called Changes Everything, Aliens & Sex & Chips & GravyOrr and Superiority Complex. Part two will follow in October and the series will be completed with part three in the new year.

All three sets can be pre-ordered today, individually for £25 on download (£28 on CD) or as a Series 5 bundle containing all three for £60 on download (£75 on CD). Pre-order your copy from the Big Finish website here.
