Big Finish's run of new Torchwood audio dramas starring original actors connected with the series reaches way back into Torchwood's televisual history with the announcement of its fourth episode.
Tracy-Ann Oberman is to return as Yvonne Hartman, who David Tennant's Tenth Doctor met in the 2006 Doctor Who episode Army of Ghosts written by Torchwood creator Russell T Davies.
That story saw the end of Yvonne, but the new Torchwood audio drama, One Rule, takes place a year before the Battle of Canary Wharf.
It’s been three weeks since the Mayor of Cardiff was killed by a shop dummy and the fight is on to see who will replace him.Written by Joseph Lidster and directed by Barnaby Edwards, the hour-long Torchwood: One Rule will be available from Big Finish in December as a CD for £9.99 and a digital download for £7.99.
Yvonne Hartman is visiting the city to retrieve an invaluable alien device. She's in charge of Torchwood One, she's saving the British Empire and she doesn't care about local politics. But she is going to find herself caught up in that fight. There’s a bloodthirsty alien stalking the streets and there’s a special offer on at the all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet.
It’s the 26th of March 2005 and it’s the day that everything changes.
