Martha Jones is back in a new Big Finish story that is out now!
Freema Agyeman is making her Big Finish debut in a brand new story in the Torchwood: Monthly range. She is joined in Torchwood: Dissected by Eve Myles, who returns to the role of Gwen Cooper. Martha Jones, former companion of the Doctor was last seen in the Doctor Who episode “The End of Time.”
The audio drama is directed by Scott Handcock and written by Tim Foley. The story will go into why Martha left Torchwood and what happened to her since:
Gwen Cooper turns up on Martha Jones’s doorstep with a dead body in tow. She needs to ask one final favour of her. And to find out why they stopped being friends.
A lot’s happened to Torchwood since Martha left. A lot’s happened to Martha since she left Torchwood. And there’s something very odd about the dead body Gwen’s brought with her.
Tonight she’s going to be getting more answers than she bargained for.
Actor Freema Agyeman said: “I have no more intel than anyone else has about what has happened in Martha’s life since we last met her, so it was really great for me to read this script, and see that she has carried on in the world that meant so much to her. She’s not one for flitting about. She does have this little fire inside of her but she has always been a very loyal person. I love that it’s just her and Gwen throughout this whole story. They get to go on their journey. There’s so much ground that has to be covered, there’s so much history there, between them and their relationship.”
Actor Eve Myles agreed: “Freema is great. I was introduced to her on Torchwood, of course, and we’ve done a lot of conventions together, and a really kooky film, Eat Locals, where we played vampire girls. And we’ve always kept in touch. So when you get a script like this, and it’s led by two females, you’ve got to jump on board straight away and enjoy it as much as possible. It’s good to be back together.”
Torchwood: Dissected is now available to own at as a download or as a collector’s edition CD. The purchase of the CD unlocks a download option on the Big Finish app and on the Big Finish website.
