This one-off radio episode cashes in on real-world fears about the controversial LHC to create a fun, exciting sci-fi horror adventure. This is the only chance the Torchwood characters have to come to terms with their losses. Though it's a bit weird to see the Torchwood team involved in something that doesn't concern the Rift, this is a worthy addition to the Torchwood canon.
If you aren't used to listening to radio drama, you may be confused by some of the conventions. The dense soundscape, using sound FX and music from the original series, might be confusing to the uninitiated. But I love radio dramas, downloading them from the BBC website at every opportunity. If this is something you're comfy with, or willing to learn to handle, then this is a particularly well-executed audio drama.
After the proper episode, there's a thirty minute radio special on the debut of Torchwood's second season on TV. I like listening to Russell T. Davies, who is smart and funny. But Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd have lousy microphone technique. This is a pretty interesting glimpse into the creative process of creating a BBC TV drama, but I'm not sure I'd want to listen to it every time I heard the audio episode.
I know audio drama isn't for everyone. But this is a particularly apt extension of the events at the end of the TV season, and a bridge into the smaller, tighter team that appears in Children of Earth. And the audio format gives the story a scope that the limits of TV can't permit, so it's easy to imagine the characters are lost in the depths of the LHC. Recommended for most Torchwood fans.
