Publisher's Summary

When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients that have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood move in to investigate. They find that the trances were triggered by phone calls, all of which were made from a number that hadn't been active for over 30 years. Determined to find out who's been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number - two, zero, five, nine - nothing. It's a dead line. Until it calls Jack back, he answers - and falls into a deep trance... With the help of one of Jack's old girlfriends, eminent neuroscientist Stella Courtney, the team has to race against time to find the source of the 'infection' and save the patients... Written specially for BBC Radio by Phil Ford, The Dead Line stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.

A missing Torchwood episode!

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

I absolutely love that this was a dramatization with the actual actors who play these roles narrating this audiobood. You could completely believe this was a missing episode. The dynamic between the actors in their roles was just as present audibly as it is visually on the TV screen.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This story is just as enthralling as any Torchwood episode the BBC aired. I didn't want to hit pause once on this story.

Any additional comments?

If you are a Janto fan... you do not want to miss this. If you just love the series pre-Exit Wounds, then you'll love this story as well. For Torchwood fans, this is well worth the time and money/credit spent.

Honestly, at times I wasn't sure if I was listening to an audiobook or the TV show. Incredibly well written and superbly dramatized by the original cast (always a pleasure). Sound effects and superb writing, not to mention voice acting, make it easy to picture the action almost as clearly as seeing it on screen. Highly recommended for all Torchwood fans - though some familiarity with the characters and basic premise of the show is necessary, as not a lot of time is spent explaining things.
