Torchwood - Mr Invincible
Captain Jack Harkness returns once more in this thrilling adventure created exclusively for audio. Taking place some time after the events of Torchwood - Miracle Day, Mr Invincible sees Captain Jack desperately trying to prevent his premonition of Gwen’s death from coming true. This in turn leads him to investigate the strange case of Ross Chapman, the titular Mr Invincible.
Chapman was just an ordinary guy, until he miraculously survives being shot. Following this revelation he does what perhaps many of us would do given the circumstances: he becomes a vigilante superhero. But for Jack it’s a race against time to discover the true nature of Chapman’s apparent immortality, not to mention getting to the bottom of why the good people of Cardiff are suddenly aging or getting younger without warning.
Read by Tom Price, who plays Sgt. Davidson in the TV series, this exclusive audio story is a must for any Torchwood fan craving their next fix. Created by Mark Morris, who has written for both Torchwood and Doctor Who, this is typical Torchwood territory. There are plenty of twists and surprises, but there is always that dark, sinister undercurrent running through the tale like a toxin. The result is an excellent standalone tale that still manages to tie neatly into the overall Torchwood arc.
