Torchwood: The Lost Files
Monday 11th to Wednesday 13th July, 2.15-3.00pm BBC Radio 4

An alien with an aversion to electricity threatens to take Earth back to the dark ages in this new Torchwood radio drama by Rupert Laight, starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd.

In the first of three Torchwood stories, when Rhys's elderly Uncle Bryn has a heart attack while listening to the shipping forecast, it seems like another routine death at Ivyday Nursing Home. Until Gwen's suspicions are roused by another elderly resident.

In Tuesday's story, by Ryan Scott, a distress signal lures Jack, Gwen and Ianto to the deepest part of the ocean – the Mariana Trench – and they find themselves trapped with a hungry alien.

In Wednesday's Torchwood, it's the last night at the House Of The Dead, the most haunted pub in Wales, and Mrs Wintergreen is holding a seance. Then the ghosts start arriving, and all hell breaks loose.
