Calling all Torchwood fans! Big Finish, known for their wonderful audio adventures in the Doctor Who universe, is releasing its 50th overall adventure, reuniting Captain Jack with the Tenth Doctor himself coming May of 2021.

John Barrowman, Gareth David-Lloyd, and David Tennant star in Torchwood: Absent Friends by James Goss, and we can listen to the creepy yet fantastic trailer for this upcoming masterpiece below.

In Torchwood: Absent Friends, fans will see Barrowman and Tennant as they reprise their iconic TV roles to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the successful spin-off. The official synopsis is below!

On a dark and stormy night in Cardiff, the city is in danger, and the Doctor’s put himself in charge of Torchwood to save it.

In a sealed recording studio, the voices of the dead have been playing for 17 years. Was it the project of a madman, or is this the site of something terrible?

Torchwood has been hunting for the Doctor since 1879. And now they’ve found him. They may regret it.

Of bringing the iconic duo together again, Barrowman said,

“Fans have been asking for this for a long time. Now that it’s okay and it’s been cleared, it’s great to have him on board. There’s an interesting dynamic going on here because Jack still wants to follow him but yet wants to impress on him that he’s still the leader.”

Tennant added, 

“Because this isn’t a Doctor Who story, the Doctor doesn’t have to be ahead of everything and saving the day. What’s interesting about this story – from the Doctor’s point of view – he sort of messes up. It’s a story about the Doctor being a bit imperfect, which is nice to see now and again, actually.”

Torchwood: Absent Friends is due for release in May 2021. However, it is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD at £10.99 or on the download at £8.99, exclusively through Big Finish
