James Goss, who is a producer for Big Finish said:
“Grace has written what’s both a quiet character piece about ‘Why is Dr. Owen Harper such a piece of work?’ and also an epic alien invasion story. It all begins with a late-night phone call and a ward full of coma patients who wake up only to talk to the dead. Meanwhile, as part of our mini-celebrations of Queen Victoria’s bicentennial year, we’ve another look at the early days of Torchwood. As a voice starts to predict the future on a remote island, it’s a chilling blend of Agatha Christie and MR James.”
The full synopsis for Iceberg by Grace Knight grabs your attention from the very start:
Dr. Owen Harper’s called to the hospital. There’s a ward full of remarkable coma patients and more are coming in. Each patient came in with a dead relative as their imaginary friend. Has Owen really discovered a bridge between the living and the dead?
Torchwood:Iceberg will be approximately 60 minutes long and set to be released in May 2020. Scott Handcock is set to be the director and script editor with James Goss producing and Grace Knight as the writer.
Save Our Souls by Scott Handcock reads:
An experimental radio mast has been set up on a remote island. It has been picking up signals – a voice that claims it knows the future. Five people have come to the island to hear the voice. A scientist, a soldier, a medium, an alienist and the most powerful woman in the world. The voice has something to say to all of them. It starts by saying who will be the first to die.
Torchwood: Save Our Souls will also be approximately 60 minutes long and set to be released in July 2020. Lisa Bowerman will be directing alongside James Goss as producer. Scott Handcock is named writer along with David Llewellyn as script editor.
