REVIEW | Torchwood: War Chest

George Hewitt reviews May's Torchwood release: War Chest! War Chest is the debut Torchwood story for writer Rossa McPhillips, and also for director Samuel Clemens.

REVIEW | Torchwood: Infidel Places

George Hewitt reviews the latest Torchwood story: Infidel Places! Una McCormack's first contribution to Big Finish's Torchwood range is an excellent story about sexism and misogyny, told through Queen Victoria's visit to Cambridge University, which allows for the welcome return of Rowena Cooper to the role.
