Another good 'post Miracle Day' Torchwood audio CD, well suited to young adults - my teenage daughter liked it,
This review is from: Torchwood: Mr Invincible (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with the companion audio CD 'Torchwood: Fallout', this audio CD 'Mr Invincible' is also read by Tom Price. Tom plays Sgt. Andy Davidson who worked with Gwen Cooper when she was a police officer, and he's had regular appearances in the Torchwood TV series. Andy had a significant role in Torchwood Season 4: Miracle Day, and the events of this audio book are set just afterwards, following on from the Torchwood audio CD `Red Skies'. Capt. Jack Harkness is in this story, and he's very concerned about Gwen as he's had a vision of her being shot by an unknown assailant. He sets out for Cardiff, and Sgt Andy Davidson is glad to see him walking into the Cardiff Police Station, as he's having trouble with a local man, Ross Chapman, a one-time loser now suddenly turned superhero (in fact he's 'Mr Invincible', not Capt Jack). Plus there's time distortions popping up all around Cardiff, and times running out for Gwen. Jack and Andy join forces to investigate.
The box has one audio CD, run time 1 hour 5 minutes. I got this Torchwood CD for my 18 year old daughter, a massive Dr Who, Sarah Jane and Torchwood TV fan, although she's more into the new Dr Who and Sarah Jane audio CDs (all read by Elisabeth Sladen). However she enjoyed listening to Torchwood: Mr Invincible and rated it 4* (a high score for her) - I suppose these Torchwood Dr Who spin-off audio CDs are aimed towards teenagers/young adults, and they seem to hit the spot. She also liked the companion Sgt Andy Davidson audio CD 'Fallout', and with run times of 1 hour she listens to them ripped to the iPod on long car journeys. Tom Price does a good job reading the books (they aren't plays so he does all the voices). While it's still uncertain if or when there will be a 5th TV season of Torchwood, at least the story continues on these audio books.
