surprisingly mediocre performance and ok story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd pass unless you're just dying for anything Torchwood


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I honestly can't find anything memorable


What aspect of John Barrowman’s performance would you have changed?

Everything. I concur with other reviewers on the observation that JB doesn't sound like Cap Jack in this book.

He's fantastic in all the other TW audio books. But I can't hear Jack's swagger and humor in this one. Could be the odd studio effect. Could be that the story just lacks character development. JB sounds rigid, wooden, and just flat. No character distinctions at all, like he is bored stiff himself.


Did Torchwood inspire you to do anything?

Not this one


Any additional comments?

The other Torchwood audio books with the entire cast are great. Short, yes, but satisfying. This one just doesn't live up to TW standard.

Fun Listen

If you like any of the Dr. Who or Kolchak or Outer Limits then this is a good show and a really good listen. The other 2 books are great listens as well.
