It is up to Torchwood to track them down and destroy them....

What would Cardiff do without Torchwood?

This is a great representation of Torchwood. If you like the show, this will bring you back. Gareth David-Lloyd narrates this beautifully and captures each charecter's voice/inflections amazingly well. Would recommend.

Pretty Good

So far this is my favorite one of the Torchwood audio books. The story is a little campy, but in a good way. Gareth's narration is first-rate; he does the various character voices and accents very convincingly.

Surprisingly deft narration and a solid plot

Gareth David-Lloyd does a great job of narrating the story even managing to wrangle Jack's personality quite well in spite of not quite hitting the accent right. The story is action packed with some nice moments between Jack and Ianto. Any established Torchwood fan will be pleased with the story although those newer to the 'verse may be a bit lost as not much is explained regarding persons and events that are referred to. There are also a number of allusions and mentions regarding the British show Top Gear as well as references to British race car drivers which may confuse American listeners or at least throw them out of the story a bit. Enjoyable romp that could have made a really solid episode.
