The first ever radio adventure for the Torchwood team, Lost Souls, was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 10 September as part of the station’s Big Bang Day celebrations. The full cast recording stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd as Captain Jack, Gwen and Ianto, and reunites them with Freema Agyeman as old friend Martha Jones. In this issue, Torchwood magazine gets the full story on the making of the play from producer and director Kate McAll, with a little help from leading man John Barrowman.

In this issue, we talk to the woman who has braved the unforgiving conditions of High Definition filming and crafted the characters’ different looks over two series of Torchwood.
