Captain Jack is suspicious of a group called The Committee. The Committee is a group that is run by aliens and they seem to have a hand in the events of the world throughout history. When renowned conspiracy theorist arrives in Cardiff and is talking about The Committee Captain Jack couldn’t waste a moment to talk to George Wilson to find out what he knows about The Committee. What Jack finds out is that most of what George Wilson has been talking about is made up but how was he right about half of the stuff he was talking about in his lectures. Only when a blogger who got to close ends up dead does Jack fear the worst and that The Committee is now after him.

Out now is the third Torchwood audio adventure and this month Eve Myles and Kai Owen reprise their roles in Forgotten Lives which takes place 4 years after Miracle Day. You can order this audio adventure from the Big Finish website.
It has been four years since the Miracle, and Gwen and Rhys's lives have gone back to normal, very normal. They're raising their daughter (they've got pictures they'd be only too happy to show you), they're living in a nice house, and they're almost on top of the laundry.
Captain Jack Harkness has been missing from the world and their lives for a long time. But late one night the phone rings, and they're summoned to an isolated part of North Wales. The Bryn Offa Nursing Home contains a dark secret, an alien threat, and someone who really shouldn't be there.
Gwen and Rhys are about to discover that Torchwood stays with you for the rest of your life.

Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), Kai Owen (Rhys Williams), Philip Bond (Griffith), Valmai Jones (Elunedd), Seán Carlsen (Gary), Emma Reeves (Ceri/Nurse Bevan)

The BBC have released a promo pic and a synopsis for this years Christmas Special which airs surprisingly enough on Christmas Day but of course no air time given by the BBC.
It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. But when a crashed spaceship calls upon the Doctor for help, he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy.
King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is?
All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time.

This is a very interesting episode and it is obvious that the number of open endings in it means that the story still has to be completed. After what some consider to be one of the worst episodes in years, "Sleep No More", we have “Face the Raven” which is a very talky almost murder mystery type of plotline. Rigsy (seen in last season's “Flatline”) is in trouble and calls the Doctor and Clara. He has a tattoo of a number on his neck that is counting down. The team investigates and locates a hidden street in London that acts as a sanctuary for stranded aliens on Earth. It appears that Rigsy killed one of those aliens and the countdown is when he will die. He has totally forgotten about the previous day. What the real story is concerns Ashildr (Maisie Williams) and yet another elaborate plan to capture the Doctor. Who set the trap and why is to be determined next episode but that is not important right now.
Face the Raven

“Let me be brave.”
Well they finally did something that I didn’t think they had the courage to do. Even though the clues were there with Clara being so reckless I didn’t think Steven Moffat would actually go ahead and kill of Clara. Yes he has killed a version of Clara before but this is was the death of an actual companion since 1982’s Earthshock. Since Adric’s death came as a surprise and no one knew what was coming as social network did not exist back then there were a lot of rumors that Clara would meet her demise. I have to say they kept the secret pretty good and most fans did not realize that it would be in episode 10. There were leaks about her leaving and it was spoiled on radio and on some sites but most did not know that she would be killed off. But the clues were there and I was one to put two and two together.
