GOLDEN AGE - by James Goss
The Torchwood team head for Delhi on the trail of a dangerous energy field, in Golden Age, written by James Goss, the second part of this brand-new series of extraterrestrial investigations starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd.
As the energy field grows once more, the team witness the simultaneous disappearance of hundreds of people and Jack discovers that the field centres on an old colonial mansion - Torchwood India.
Shocked to find that Torchwood India is still going strong, since he shut it down himself more than 80 years ago, Jack is even more surprised to find that its members, including his old flame, the Duchess, haven’t aged a day.
When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients who have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood moves in to investigate in the third part of this brand new series of extra-terrestrial investigations starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd.
The trances appear to have been triggered by phone calls, all received on retro phones and made from a number that hasn’t been active for more than 30 years.
Determined to find out who’s been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number - two, zero, five, nine. It seems to be a dead line … until Jack is called back.
