Today, the second of three new Torchwood radio plays, The Dead Line, 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, The Dead Line, can be read below:
When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients who have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood moves in to investigate in the third part of this brand new series of extra-terrestrial investigations starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd. The trances appear to have been triggered by phone calls, all received on retro phones and made from a number that hasn’t been active for more than 30 years. Determined to find out who’s been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number – two, zero, five, nine. It seems to be a dead line … until Jack is called back. The third and final episode, The Dead Line, is written by Phil Ford.
Torchwood: The Dead Line will be aired on BBC Radio Four at 2.15pm in the afternoon play slot and will be available to listen to shortly after on BBC iPlayer.
