Book Description

4 Aug 2011 Torchwood (Book 21)

Cardiff Bay. The government has ordered the excavation of the wreckage of a secret underground base. DCI Tom Cutler is watching from a distance, fascinated by the process. There are people in his dreams. People he feels he should know.

The disbanded Torchwood Institute spent a century accumulating non-terrestrial artefacts and catching aliens. Who knows what - or who - might still be intact down there. But by the time they find the first body, Suzie Costello is long gone.

Based on the hit science fiction series created by Russell T Davies, Long Time Dead is a prequel to Torchwood: Miracle Day, starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles as Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper. It features Suzie Costello, as played by Indira Varma.

5.0 out of 5 stars genuinely superb 4 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked the first of the new trilogy of books a lot, but this one is seriously good. Bringing back characters who had a minor role- Suzie, DI Cutler, Andy etc is a stroke of genius- and ive always wanted to know what happened to the hub. Plus there are flashbacks to moments of suzie with the team (Ianto, Tosh and Owen) which really help her backstory, and help this settle into the canon better than i suspect the next book (which seems to be chiefly new american cast) will.
This fills in all sorts of gaps, and whats more its really well written, very engaging and satisfyingly gory! This is definately up there with "almost perfect" as the best torchwood book, and its one i suspect will get read again and again. Brill!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spoiler-free Review of "Long Time Dead" 28 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
As this was my first Torchwood novel, I checked my expectations at the door when I sat down to read "Long Time Dead" by Sarah Pinborough. Set post-Season 3's "Children of Earth" but pre-Season 4's "Miracle Day", "Long Time Dead" starts with the excavation of the wreckage of the secret underground base that once belonged to a Government Agency that was now disbanded, and on the run from the people they once worked for. New characters are introduced, as well as old friends thought to be forgotten as Sarah spins a wonderful tale of intrigue, action and horror, with a touch of humour and an ending you don't see coming - everything you DO expect from a Torchwood episode on television. If you love a good mystery, and don't mind aliens or 'spooky do', then pick up a copy of "Long Time Dead". You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Reas 9 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yet another good read in the Torchwood series of novels. As appers to be the norm for this series of books, descriptions are at the front of creating the right atmosphere. Die hard purists may find that as Captain Jack Harkness has so little involvement, it may not be Torchwood. Although there is reference to the 'baddie' as being in the TV series, I can't place her, even though I watched all of the TV shows. For all that, well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will make your eyes pop! 6 Sep 2011
By Mr. K. Mahoney VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I've never read Sarah Pinborough before, but I do know that she's an up-and-coming horror writer who is currently being published by Gollancz. Indeed, the first few pages of Long Time Dead had me chuckling, as I saw that she'd named a couple of minor characters after members of the Gollancz team. So, hats off to BBC Books for getting another such accomplished author to write for their Doctor Who/Torchwood range.

Long Time Dead sees the very welcome return of Suzie Costello to the Torchwood world, and it's not long before this revived bad girl is being very bad indeed... The last time we saw her, it looked as though Suzie had finally been killed off for good. However, despite having blown a sizeable hole through her own head, she'd already previously come back from the dead. Indeed, Torchwood creator Russell T Davies had apparently planned to resurrect her occasionally, however this was scuppered when Indira Varma became pregnant prior to the filming of the second series. Now that she's been seemingly regenerated in Long Time Dead, Suzie appears intent on adding as many people as she can to her previously deceased state...

However, following the destruction of the Hub at the end of Children of Earth, its wreckage is being extensively searched by the Department in their quest for any useful or dangerous alien technology that they can find. (In a nice tie-in with

5.0 out of 5 stars Suzie Surprise! 22 May 2013
Format:Paperback
Faithful fans of Russell T Davies' adult themed Doctor Who spin-off will rejoice at the return of a great character from Series One. Suzie Costello returns after the destruction of Torchwood Cardiff, the events of which are depicted in Series Three: Torchwood Children of Earth, and she is even darker and more bent on the destruction of mankind than ever before.

There is very little involvement from remaining Torchwood Cardiff members Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper, but a great new character DI Cutler takes centre stage, as he attempts to solve a series of gruesome slayings in Cardiff whilst simultaneously battling the mysterious `Department', who are trying to take over the investigation for their own purposes.

Sarah Pinborough has an energetic and hypnotic writing style, and the story zips along nicely, with some well-drawn characters and evocative descriptions of the creeping darkness that threatens to overwhelm them all.
