This CD audiobook gives us an insight as to what happens to the Torchwood organisation when its resources are low. With a constant bombardment of threats and anomalies to investigate, Captain Jack Harkness and his crew are stretched to the limits and often appear in danger of losing control of some dangerous situations.
The Amok is an alien transmitting information into human minds. Harmless enough, until you factor in the fact that our brains simply aren’t designed to handle data of this magnitude. The result is that those affected are turning into little short of zombies. However, as with most Torchwood audiobooks for MP3, the big threat isn’t usually the main one.
Throw in an alien soldier disguised as a businessman, a time rift at the local church and the troubles of a door-to-door salesman and you might be getting close to the heart of the matter – especially if you were to ask Taff Morgan just what he’s hiding in his shed…
Eve Myles, best known as the series’ Gwen Cooper, lends her vocal skills to this story, inhabiting all the characters with deceptive ease. While the storyline might appear complicated, Myles guides us through each layer, until the terrifying truth is laid bare. A tense audiobook thriller for all fans of science fiction.
