Once a year, Torchwood Cardiff does a different kind of public service – it helps the local police with long-idle cold cases.
Naturally, PC Andy jumps for this opportunity to follow in Gwen’s footsteps, though she isn’t to be his liaison – for what better member of Torchwood for Corpse Day than the currently-rather-dead Owen?
Together, Andy and Owen investigate a trend of missing girls, and soon end up far deeper than they expected. It’s not just The Rift that spirits people away, and sometimes humans can be more vicious and disturbing than anything beyond this planet…
It’s fair to say that Torchwood Cardiff has had a bit of a rough time from a human resources point of view, and right from the first televised episode staff numbers have been dwindling. By 2016 it’s gotten to a point where the company creche and bring your child to work day are the same thing, and Gwen is really gasping for someone to make a half-decent cup of coffee at the very least. So now, finally… come on down,
PC Sergeant Andy Davidson, it’s time to shine!
It all started like such a normal day for Andy Davidson, with a nice cuppa and trying to plan how to introduce himself to a girl without seeming stalky. But then Norton Falgate quite literally appears from nowhere, and the pressure is on as Andy is to be assessed for Torchwood. There will be danger, goo, aliens, singing and analysis of the Welsh mind – but will there be breaks for tea and the loo?
