Prior to the airing of Children of Earth, The BBC has commissioned and produced three audio dramas based on the characters in Torchwood, the first of which, “Asylum” airs on BBC Radio 4 tomorrow at 2.15pm. Bit of a bugger of a time, this, when you are working and you can’t get to a radio. However, the joys of the BBC internet sites means that without too much bother there is a link to these said plays which makes them available for download for a week after each is broadcast.
Glad I found it too. It’s :
and I reckon it’s servers are going to be busy tomorrow.
