Torchwood: Asylum Today

Today, the first of three Torchwood radio plays, Asylum, will be broadcast for the first time. The new radio play includes the voices of John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Llyod who also star in the TV series as Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones. The synopsis for today's Torchwood radio play, Asylum, can be read below:

When PC Andy Davidson arrests a young girl for shoplifting, he thinks it's going to be a routine case. That is, until he sees that she is carrying a gun. The girl is soaking wet, covered in mud, and the weapon is like nothing he's ever seen before. He knows that this is a case for Torchwood... The team discovers that the girl is called Freda, but can find out nothing else. Yet when she speaks, it's a strange mix of English and Icelandic, but with a Cardiff accent. While Jack and Ianto check out the girl's weapon and her blood sample at the Hub, Gwen and PC Andy take Freda to a safe house. But when Jack calls with the results - and Freda goes on the run - PC Andy finds his world turning upside down.

Torchwood: Asylum will be broadcast on BBC Radio Four at 2.15pm in the afternoon play slot and will be available to listen to shortly after on BBC iPlayer.
