  • Into the Silence - by Sarah Pinborough
    "The body in the church hall is very definitely dead. It has been sliced open with surgical precision, its organs exposed, and its vocal cords are gone. It is as if they were never there or they've been dissolved... With the Welsh amateur Operatic Contest getting under way, music is filling the churches and concert halls of Cardiff. The competition has attracted the finest Welsh talent to the city, but it has also drawn something else - there are stories of a metallic creature hiding in the shadows. Torchwood are on its tail, but it's moving too fast for them to track it down. This new threat requires a new tactic - so Ianto Jones is joining a male voice choir..."

  • Bay of the Dead - by Mark Morris
    "When the city sleeps, the dead start to walk... Something has sealed off Cardiff, and living corpse are stalking the streets, leaving a trail of half-eaten bodies. Animals are butchered. A young coupe in their car never reach home. A stolen tugboat is brought back to shore, carrying only human remains. And a couple of girls heading back from the pub watch the mysterious drivers of a big black SUV take over a crime scene. Torchwood have to deal with the intangible barrier surrounding Cardiff, and some unidentified space debris that seems to be regenerating itself. Plus, of course, the all-night zombie horror show. Not that they really believe in zombies."

  • The House that Jack Built - by Guy Adams
    "Jackson Leaves - an Edwardian house in Penylen, built 1906, semi-detached, three storeys, spacious, beautifully presented. Left in good condition to Rob and Julia by Rob's late aunt. It's an ordinary sort of a house. Except for the way the rooms don't stay in the same places. And the strange man that turns up in the airing cupboard. And the apparitions. And the temporal surges that attract the attentions of Torchwood. And the fact that the first owner of Jackson Leaves in 1906 was a Captain Jack Harkness..."

The 3 Doctor Who books are set for release some time in Autumn 2009 and the Torchwood books will be released 29th May 2009.

  1. I know this really has nothing to do with the topic at hand...but I have to say this or I might just bloodywell burst....David Tennant is the best Dr Who ever...He's gorgeous..and I'm really going to miss him when he leaves Dr Who...its not a question of anyone else being able to play the part...its more a case of THEY SHOULDN'T...he made that role his own and no one could even match up to him...oh well..thats my opinion
