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.
