Jack meets the Duchess after a long separation. There's sound of gun shot

Jack: Duchess, did you miss me?

Duchess: Only just.

What's not to love!?

James Goss is one of the most innovative and talented Doctor Who / Torchwood writers out there, so whenever he delivers a more standard tale I feel a bit disappointed. "Golden Age" is such a tale, but it's a very good story nonetheless.

The novel takes the Torchwood team- post Tosh and Owen- into Delhi, where a number of people have disappeared under peculiar circumstances. On site Jack is confronted with his past in the India branch of Torchwood during the colonial era and has to face some of hi

Jack, Gwen and Ianto are searching for a mysterious energy field it leads them to Torchwood India in Dehli - there's only one problem - Jack shut the place down in 1924 but it's still standing, and none of the people have aged a day in 80 years...

A full cast dramatisation, this isn't bad with excellent production, however I didn't particularly like the story. Taking it out of Cardiff and setting it in India makes it feel less Torchwoody somehow and the story isn't that interesting. Gwen and Iant
Golden Age совершенно нежданно закидывает нас вместе с героями в Индию, и рассказывает о днях Торчвуд-Индия — подразделения, которое по словам Джека, он собственноручно закрыл еще 80 лет назад. Как оказалось, закрыл неплотно.

Торчвуд-Индия в лице The Duchess, она же Элеанор, и еще двух людей существует и по сей день — и эти трое не состарились ни на день за все 80 лет. В процессе выясняется, что все здание, благодаря артефакту, застыло в одном дне (24 февраля 1924г). И все бы хорошо, но безумной

A Torchwood radio drama set after the death of Tosh and Owen. Torchwood is following the trail of a highly dangerous energy field, one that is causing thousands of people to disappear in Delhi, India. Once the team arrives at the source location, Captain Jack Harkness discovers Torchwood India and his former lover, the Duchess, still the same over eighty years after his last visit.

A pleasant enough tale that would've been better served in a longer format. The primary focus is on Jack with the ba

3.5/5 stars
More like 3 and 1/2 stars. Still the one I liked the best even after a second listen. I liked that Queen Victoria created branches of Torchwood throughout the Empire. Torchwood India opens up like many, many possibilities. I even liked The Duchess in all her delirium. It's something that couldn't have been filmed but makes a good action pack radio play.

This audio does a good job of capturing the feel of the show. The premise is intriguing, the situation is engaging, the execution was spot on. And the whole thing takes place outside of Cardiff, which was refreshing. Overall, a fine addition to the canon of Torchwood.
