Springs Hosting

Sophie Aldred’s classic Doctor Who companion Ace joins one of Torchwood’s finest in the midst of an alien invasion in The Red List, a new audio adventure from Big Finish Productions. 

Torchwood: The Red List

Announced in August, the full cast audio drama out Nov. 18 features the return of Paul Clayton (Doctor Who, Peep Show) as Torchwood Three’s Mr Colchester alongside Sophie Aldred as Dorothy McShane, in a thrilling tale of hotel lunches, cryptic crossword puzzles and a world in need of saving once again.  

Torchwood: The Red List is now available as a collector’s edition CD at £10.99 or on download at £8.99 from  

At first it was lights in the sky. Then the country started falling apart. Torchwood has come to help. So has A Charitable Earth. But there’s a problem. 

Mr Colchester and Ms McShane find themselves trapped in a quarantine hotel in the middle of an alien invasion.  

Can they save the world without leaving their rooms? 

Writer James Goss said: “Ace meets Torchwood! The grumpy Mr Colchester must work out what to make of Dorothy McShane, and gets her totally wrong.  

“It’s a conspiracy thriller set in a hotel, and it was an absolute joy to put Sophie Aldred against Paul Clayton. It’s great to see the two of them square up against each other.”

The cast is completed by Manuel Pacific (Terminator: Dark Fate) making his Big Finish debut as Xavier, a maintenance man who deals with Mr Colchester’s constant complaints.  

Actor Paul Clayton said: “In The Red List, we get to hear Mr Colchester interacting with somebody new who, perhaps, has no preconceptions about him.  

“Normally, his sardonic witticisms are pushed to one side while the plot moves forward. Here, I think, we get him at his full, slightly slanted, look at the world. Certainly, it’s great fun to do. To work with Sophie is a joy.”
