Don’t forget that the final Torchwood radio story, The Dead Line by Phil Ford, will be on BBC Radio 4 later this afternoon.
When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients who have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood move in to investigate. But the trances appear to have been triggered by phone calls, all received on retro phones and made from a number that hadn’t been active for over 30 years…
Determined to find out who has been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number, but the line is dead. But then it calls Jack back.
The Dead Line, which is the third pre-series audio play to have aired this week, will transmit at 2:15PM on BBC Radio 4 this afternoon. To listen to it again afterwards, head over to the BBC’s iPlayer service. It’ll also be available to buy on CD, along with yesterday’s episode, Golden Age, from 8th July 2009.
