REVIEW: Torchwood: The Red List – A Rich Character Drama of Isolation and Paranoia

McShane and Colchester have been assigned – Torchwood: The Red List provides rich, character based drama as the two quarantine buddies get cabin fever. Amazingly, it’s now been six years since Big Finish’s Torchwood range began. Since the beginning it’s set new standards for Doctor Who related audio adventures and quickly grown to be one of the jewels in the Big Finish crown. Unsurprising, as it contains some of the finest character work and skillful storytelling across their whole output. But also because it’s been consistently excellent. The Red List is Torchwood’s 56th release in a monthly series that’s rarely dipped below par and contains almost no true clunkers. And based on this latest offering, it’s a track record the Torchwood team have every intention of keeping.
