Another decent Torchwood audio CD primarily aimed at young adults - My teenage daughter quite enjoyed the story,
This review is from: Torchwood: Fallout (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This audio CD is read by Tom Price, the actor who plays Sgt. Andy Davidson. Andy 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 `Army of One'. Capt. Jack and Rex aren't in `Fallout', and Gwen only appears via a telephone conversation, so this is Sgt. Davidson's investigation. It all begins when Yasmin finds a jewelled egg in her grandfather's shed, and her first thought is to sell it. But it appears the egg isn't a Faberge creation, and is in fact an artefact from another planet. Worse still, the buyer she finds for it online isn't what he seems either. Sgt Andy Davidson gets involved, but Gwen is in America and there's no longer any Torchwood to help out. So Andy and Yasmin have to start the investigation alone.
The box has one audio CD, run time 1 hour. 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 the new Dr Who and Sarah Jane audio CDs (all read by Elisabeth Sladen). However she enjoyed listening to Torchwood: Fallout and rated it 3.5* (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 'Mr Invincible', 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. 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.
