Torchwood: Believe starring full original cast out today

A brand new Big Finish audio adventure reuniting the full original Torchwood team for the first time in ten years is out from today.

Torchwood: Believe, first announced earlier this year, brings together the show's original cast of John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness), Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones), Burn Gorman (Owen Harper) and Naoko Mori (Toshiko Sato) for the first time since 2008's Exit Wounds, the Torchwood series two finale which saw the departures of cast members Gorman and Mori.
The Church of the Outsiders believe that mankind is about to evolve, to reach out into the stars. Owen Harper believes that Torchwood has to do whatever it takes to stop them.


As well as the original Torchwood team, Believe also features special guest star Arthur Darvill - best known to Doctor Who fans as Eleventh Doctor companion Rory Williams - as the vicious Frank Layton.

Speaking in this month's issue of Big Finish's in-house magazine Vortex, Barrowman says:
“This is the first time in a long while we’ve had the entire Torchwood team back together. It’s something we should do more often, as I know from travelling all over the world doing conventions, I’m meeting the massive amount of fans out there who want the old team back together doing stuff.”
Myles adds:
“It’s incredibly difficult to get us all in to record at the same time. But we’ve managed to get these important audios out to our fans who have been loyal to us for such a long time.”
Torchwood: Believe is now available to purchase exclusively from Big Finish on CD and digital download, and will go on general sale after 30th June 2018.
