Torchwood Magazine #16

The cover and information for the official Torchwood Magazine issue #16 have been released by Titan on their TWM website. You can see both below..."IT’S BACK!
Torchwood magazine returns for the last time before Children of Earth finally hits our television screens in July! We whet the appetite for the new series in the latest issue with more sensational coverage – check out this page for all the info!"

[Ed - click cover, left, to enlarge] The latest issue of Torchwood magazine is available as an exclusive collector’s edition, featuring a specially commissioned cover illustration by comic artist Michael Golden to celebrate the "Rift War" comic strip storyline. The magazine is only available to buy through comic book stores. You can find your nearest specialist retailer here, and print out a form to reserve your newsstand or collectible edition here."

It's more than just a TV show, you know! One of Torchwood’s biggest multimedia successes has been the Rift War saga, a 10-part comic strip that has featured in the pages of Torchwood magazine. Celebrating Titan Books’ release of the whole collection in one volume, we speak to the celebrated writers and artists behind the epic adventure. Paul Grist, Simon Furman, Ian Edginton and D’Israeli were already well known in the world of comics – in the latest issue they talk about applying their distinctive styles and bold, big-picture storytelling to the wonderful world of Torchwood."

As Torchwood: Children of Earth gets ever closer, read what the stars of the show – John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd – have to say about the eagerly-anticipated new series! Still, that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the latest issue’s essential coverage of the show, as we bring you the second part of an exclusive photo collection direct from the set! Plus, find out what alien terrors lurk beneath the heavily guarded doors of Floor 13 in Children of Earth, as Torchwood magazine’s man on the inside makes a break from the gargantuan set with an exclusive production report!"

Following the success of Lost Souls, the one-off Torchwood adventure broadcast on Radio 4 last year, the Torchwood cast has been back in the studio to record three new audio adventures! The three plays are Asylum by Anita Sullivan, Golden Age by James Goss, and The Dead Line by Phil Ford. In the latest issue, Torchwood magazine editor Simon Hugo visits the studio to get the lowdown on the plays, and finds stories that span continents and concepts in ways that most TV shows can only dream of."

Torchwood magazine continues to look back at series one of the show with a unique guide to They Keep Killing Suzie. If the title rings a bell, that’s because it’s a riff on The Avengers story title, They Keep Killing Steed, in which the diabolical mastermind of the week tries to infiltrate a peace conference with doubles of John Steed. Plus, we interview one of the episode’s guest stars about the Torchwood experience – after playing a talking tree in Doctor Who, Yasmin Bannerman gave a memorable performance in They Keep Killing Suzie as the sharp-tongued Detective Swanson."
