Book Description

6 Aug 2009 BBC Audio
On the trail of a dangerous energy field, Torchwood are led to Delhi. There they witness the simultaneous disappearance of hundreds of people, and Jack discovers that the field centers on an old colonial mansion - Torchwood India. Jack is shocked to find that Torchwood India is still going strong - he shut it down himself over 80 years ago. He's even more surprised to find that its members, including his old flame the Duchess, haven't aged a day. What is the secret of their eternal youth, and how is it linked to the deadly energy field? The team must find out - and they haven't a moment to lose, for all the time the field is expanding...Written specially for BBC Radio by James Goss, "Golden Age" stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Torchwood: India 12 Aug 2009
By Emanon
Format:Audio CD
In-between series 2 and series 3 ("Children of Earth") of TORCHWOOD on television, BBC Radio 4 broadcast four audio dramatizations of the series using the voice talents of the remaining cast members John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd. The first, "Lost Souls" was broadcast in 2008 as part of "Big Bang" day to coincide with the official opening of the Cern Large Hadron Collider. Then, on consecutive weekdays (the week before "Torchwood: Children of Earth" was broadcast on TV) came the other three plays of which this, "Golden Age" was the second - not that you need to listen to "Asylum" to appreciate this episode as they do not form a linked trilogy.

The three surviving members of the original TORCHWOOD team are in India investigating a mysterious power surge that is causing vast quantities of people to disappear. Only in India, you suspect, do the writers believe that this could plausibly happen. Of course this isn't "real" India, this is "Yes, We Have No Bananas", "Little Yellow Idol" India, but it's nicely realized (especially in the Torchwood: India scenes) and getting away from Cardiff does add a certain something to the formula. The team soon encounter a Duchess (nicely played by Jasmine Hyde) who is impossibly young and is an old flame of one Captain Jack Harkness, whose past is most definitely starting to catch up with him.

Of the three plays, this is the one I enjoyed most on first transmission as it's quite an enjoyable little tale with some witty asides and rattles along nicely. The nature of the story, with its spin on the tragedy of lost worlds and a refusal to face up to change is actually quite strong and thought provoking and makes for an entertaining enough three-quarters of an hour in the company of the familiar characters from the TV show.

This episode was preceded by "Asylum" and then followed by "The Dead Line" and there are no bonus features on the CD, just the 45 minute radio play.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but not too nice 4 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
It is nice to fill the gap with new stories now that Torchwood's brief mini-series is over. BBC Radio Drama has provided us a few adventures of the Torchwood crew. This story, Golden Age, is a nice cookie-cutter adventure that we can come to expect from a non-tv story. There is no character development to speak of, just a simple, short story to keep Torchwood fans engaged through the long wait for another series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great but too short 17 Aug 2011
By Jo Bennie VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a lot of money for a 45 minute radio play, but it is a great Torchwood story with the voices of Eve Myles (Gwen), John Barrowman (Captain Jack) and Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto). Full of energy and sound effects.

The Torchwood team are in Dehli, battling an energy wave that suddenly makes an entire district of people disappear. They trace the source to the former Torchwood India, now an expatriate club which Jack closed down at the turn of the century. Inside they are fired upon by Jack's former companion the Duchess, mysteriously alive, well and preserved in her mid twenties. The tension mounts as they battle to find the source of the energy wave and prevent themselves and the people of Dehli from being erased from existence.

Not one of the best Torchwood audio books I've ever listened to, but still enjoyable.
