A fun, creepy and occasionally funny audiobook,
This review is from: Torchwood: Department X (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I can't say that it was the best story I've ever heard, and will not recommend it enthusiastically, but would certainly be a good addition for big fans of the series. The plot is fun, with a sinister organisation to rival Torchwood searching for the lost Department of Curiosities, and segments of Captain Jack's past coming back to haunt him, but it is not riveting. It also falters out towards the climax, with garbled dialogue and a confusing end.
The narrator is excellent, as a reader, but fails drastically on the accents. His native welsh accent does not lend itself well to American and Canadian accents, though this does not detract too much from the overall experience.
All in all an OK Torchwood audiobook. Not much to hate, but not much to love, either. Only one for hardcore fans.
